Mountains of snow!

Mountain of snow in NE Moncton, 03 April 2014 (Dearing)

As of yesterday, 03 April, Environment Canada recorded about 80 cm of snow on the ground at the Greater Moncton Airport.

Without a doubt that is a lot of snow for early April and early spring but incredibly not a record.

It was also very snowy during the same period in 1967 – 47 years ago! – when 84 cm of snow was lying on the ground.

However, the melting has already begun and the forecast is calling for near normal or slightly above normal temperatures for the next week.

The above picture shows the mountain of snow piled outside my home in NE Moncton and every week I will post an updated shot until it has all melted away.
