A messy mix

Almost all forms of precipitation fell from from the sky in Greater Moncton this week.

On Wednesday, it started out raining and about 2 mm fell before it changed to freezing rain for several hours which made for an icy and slushy mess.

Later the precipitation changed to snow and it fell both lightly and heavily from Wednesday afternoon to Friday evening for an additional 22 cm.

In total, Greater Moncton now has about 70 cm of snow on the ground.

Incidently, the same system brought heavy amounts of snow to Northern New Brunswick where Bathurst was buried in almost 70 cm of snow.

But local officials say the the snow will benefit the snowmobile and skiing industries.
