Blizzard by numbers

15
The worst winter storm in recent memory buried Greater Moncton in almost 60 cm of snow but the city did not win the snow lottery in the region.

Charlottetown took that honour with 80 cm of snow which is more than what usually falls during the entire month of February.

Winds were also very strong gusting up to 83 km/h in Moncton and a hurricane-force 108 km/h in Saint John.

City officials in Moncton say it could take up to three weeks to do a proper clean up following the blizzard.
