    The forecast called for 20 cm with an additional 10 tonight. Seems more like 30cm fell.

    The first pic was taken the night before. The remaining pictures were taken over a 13 hour period from 9:30 AM to 10:30PM Dec 6th.

    Awsome pictures! Wish the storm would have moved a little bit more inland and dumped more snow on us in New Bruswick. Can't beat a fresh timmy's coffee eh.

    Good luck the rest of the season,

    Are you guys getting a bit of cold temps behind that storm, we got down below -10 last night, turned everything to cement. Looks like that storm picked up more moisture before it hit you guys. We only got about 15-20cms here in Northern Nova Scotia.

    You're exactly right. The temp here dropped last night with high winds but it's not that cold this morning (-2C), but still there is alot of ice and it was near impossiblle to scrap down to the pavement. A few of our main roads in the city are like driving on a dirt road due to ice build-up.

    The worst part is that I busted a conical spring in my plow controller this morning. I've been driving around the city looking to pick up a new on but there are none to be found. Could take three weeks to get one in due to the heavy mail/courier services for Christmas. The search continues.

    Man that is crazy. My cousin was telling me about that storm. He said he was out for a while for that storm, i talked to him today at like 6 30 pm down there and he told me he was just getting out of bed from the storm. They are working out of paradise. I wonder if his father let him take the new 2010 chev 2500 out!
