Deep in Snow

On Sunday, 15 February 2015, the Maritimes were hit with a classic "raging blizzard." It started in the morning and lasted all day and night. By Monday, 16 February, the snow had stopped but the fierce winds continued all day. Snowfall amounts varied across the province, but an average of perhaps 50cm fell, and it was whipped around causing huge drifts.
