Police were asking residents to stay home and motorists were being urged to use extreme caution on the roads if they had to venture out.
As I drove to work this morning on Wheeler Boulevard in Moncton, my vehicle became stuck in snow as several vehicles were left stranded ahead of me.
Fortunately, two off-duty paramedics pushed me out shortly after a plow had gone by to clear at least one lane of traffic.
