A record breaking blizzard.

An intense Nor’easter

The type of storm we classify a weather “bomb” blasted into Canada’s Atlantic provinces on March 26, 2014, in stark contrast to the day before.

The day before was deceptively calm, allowing locals to get ready and then hunker down indoors when the storm roared in.

Charlottetown saw over 50cm of snow. Grand Etang, Cape Breton recorded wind gusts over 170 kilometres per hour.

It would prove to be the strongest storm of the winter. From the 5 p.m. “prep day” to 5 p.m. “storm day” today’s time lapse takes us through 24 hours in Nova Scotia with Weather Network viewer Jay McTague
