City of Moncton officials are starting to wonder if the snow will stop long enough so that crews can do a proper job of snow removal.

Prior to the start of today’s blizzard late this afternoon – the third major storm in a week – the weather office noted that 68 cm of snow was lying on the ground at the Greater Moncton International Airport.

With 40 cm of snow in the forecast for Southeast New Brunswick, the region could be left with almost 110 cm on the ground – not to mention high drifts from strong, gusty winds.

Shopping malls closed early and city buses were pulled off the streets by 6pm to ensure most residents got home before the blizzard hit.
