Newfoundlanders are a hardy folk but even they are sick of snow.

A wintry blast dumped more than 22 cm of snow in Gander today where it looked more like early March than early May.

St. John’s picked up a few centimetres of snow and has been dealing with periods of freezing rain, freezing drizzle and dense fog.

The precipitation led to slick roads throughout much of the island and driving conditions were dangerous.
