Blizzard totals in Maritimes

thumb
Schools were shut down for a second day in Southeast New Brunswick and few businesses chose to open after a major blizzard dumped more than 50 cm of snow on Greater Moncton by late today.

Strong winds gusting to 117 km/h created blowing and drifting snow which hampered all modes of transportation.

In the American Northeast, the blizzard packed the biggest punch in Boston with more than 60 cm of snow while about 30 cm fell in New York City prompting a rare shutdown of the public transit system and apologies from some weather forecasters who predicted even more would fall.
