Ski-Clad Residents Trudge Through Feet of Snow in St John’s

People trudged through massive snow drifts that swallowed some cars along a residential street in St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, on January 19.

Environment Canada said “intense winds and record-breaking snowfall” bore down on Newfoundland on Friday. A total of 76.2 centimeters (30 inches) of snow was recorded at St John’s
International Airport on Friday, shattering the previous record of 68.4 centimeters (about 27 inches) that was set in April of 1999, according to the weather service.
