Great Groundhog Day Storm!

Snowbanks get higher Moncton, 03 Feb 11

The so-called Groundhog Day Storm has been a massive winter system spreading snow and ice over much of eastern North America from Texas to the Maritimes.

The U.S. Weather Service called this a winter storm of historic proportions which produced heavy snow (Chicago had 50 cm), dangerous ice accumulations and bitter wind chills throughout roughly two-thirds of the continental U.S.

In the Maritimes, mainland Nova Scotia got the brunt of this storm with up to 50 cm reported in some areas.

Greater Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick received between 20 and 25 cm of snow.
