No April Fool’s – a nasty ice storm!

Students in Southeast New Brunswick enjoyed another day off today as a stubborn low pressure system stalled over the region bringing strong winds, snow, rain, freezing rain and ice pellets.

The storm has knocked down power lines and poles thanks to falling branches and trees.

Many have been without power in the Shediac and Bouctouche areas since Sunday night and warming centres have opened for those needing refuge.

I lost power in my northeast Moncton neighbourhood for almost three hours last night and the drive home was slow due to traffic light outages which often led to chaos at intersections.
