The cleanup is underway after the biggest snowstorm of the season made Greater Moncton its target.

Environment Canada says 32 cm of snow has fallen in the region over the past 24 hours.

Moncton public works foreman Kevin Allen says crews are busy plowing and salting today.

This snowfall still pales in comparison to the big Nor’easter of 1992 which began on February 1st and dropped 83 cm of snow on that day alone – 162 cm in total over several days.
