The first winter storm of 2014 packed quite a punch in the Northeastern United States, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland – dropping up to 60 cm of snow with strong winds reducing visibility.
But further inland, the blizzard was less intense and much less snow was recorded.
In Greater Moncton, many are likely relieved we received only 4.3 cm given that we already have almost 90 cm of snow on the ground.
