Waiting for a bus in Moncton 28 Feb 11

Snow, snow and more snow… it never seemed to stop in February in Greater Moncton – a trend that began in late December.

Only 7 days during the month recorded no precipitation and what did fall came mainly as snow with the heaviest event of 24.2 cm recorded on the 25th.

The month was also colder than usual with a prolonged below-freezing stretch finally being broken on the 17th.
