Storm aftermath

It is still a mess this morning.

The plows have been working all night on the main roads but the winds are still fairly strong and the roads start to drift over not long after the plows have gone through. There’s also the problem of just getting your car out of a parking lot to the street.

The storm knocked out electricity for thousands…and some may not be back on the grid until tonight. About 7,000 Nova Scotia Power customers were out this morning. Over 70cms of snow fell in some areas; Sydney registered 40cm with more falling this morning.

Schools remain closed today.

Provincial government offices are closed until at least noon. They will reassess later this morning.
