An incredible amount of ice has coated much of New Brunswick with Greater Moncton hit with more than 41 hours worth of freezing rain and ice pellets as of early today.

NB Power crews have been scrambling to try and bring the lights back on for Christmas Day.

At the outage peak more than 50,000 customers were in the dark and although the numbers keep dropping, many may not have their electricity back until Saturday.

Warming centres have been opened in schools and community halls for those who may need them.
