About 14 cm of snow in Moncton, 03 Dec 2015 (Choi/Facebook)

Early December ushered in the first real taste of winter for Greater Moncton wit 14 cm of snow, but not before 12 mm of rain also fell.

The storm knocked out power to thousands of New Brunswickers with especially long blackouts in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas where the Red Cross opened temporary warming centres.

Most schools in the province were closed on Thursday.

Traffic was brought to a crawl as drivers tried to adjust to the wintry conditions.
