Snow kept piling up in Southeast New Brunswick during February 2013 as one winter storm after another pounded the region.
If it wasn’t a blizzard, it was a Nor’easter with major snow events on the 17-18 February with 33 cm and 9-10 February with 40 cm.
With little rain and no real warmth for melting, the snow stuck around making for high snowbanks in Greater Moncton.
But apart from a brief cold spell early in the month, overall temperatures were relatively mild with many daytime highs near or slightly above freezing.
