newfoundland snow

There's so much snow in Newfoundland right now the rest of Canada is in awe

Areas in Newfoundland have been getting hit hard with winter weather this week. Over 40 cm of snow has accumulated since Sunday night, and it appears more is one the way. 

Environment Canada has a special weather statement in effect for the entire province, warning that more snow and wind are on the way starting Wednesday evening into Thursday morning.

People on the island are still working to clean up after the massive storm this week. 

The amount of snow made it look like people were just swimming in snow, with amounts being knee to waist deep.

For some the snowfall was trickier to maneuver than it was for others.  

After a few days of shoveling, the snow has stopped flying and the views are beautiful.

There's something about the colourful buildings in Newfoundland on a backdrop of fresh white snow that creates the perfect Canadian winter scene, like in this photo by photographer Mark Gray.

But it hasn't been all fun and games with this major snowfall, thousands of people were without power after the storm. Here's hoping that Wedsnesday's snowfall will be a little more bearable.
