Residents of Gander might be asking, what have we done to deserve this Mother Nature?
Snow has finally stopped falling central Newfoundland after an exceptional stretch of blizzards which have brought a record 135 cm in just six days.
Drivers were being urged to stay off highways in the region as the plows struggled and often got stuck keeping up with the heavy snow.
Schools were closed for a third day and many businesses and government offices were shuttered.
Meteorologists say Gander now has 241 cm of snow on the ground which is an all-time record beating 174 cm from 2004.
Rain and milder temperatures are in the forecast which raises concerns about rapid snow melt and possible flooding by next week.
