|Yes, this is real! This is French Mountain on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS.|

You may have heard about our most recent snow storm this past Wednesday. Parts of Nova Scotia received another 74 cm (30 in) of snow; Cape Breton Island received another 80 cm (31.5 in).
And here on the South Shore, 14 inches of snow fell in a 2 hour period. It was the final straw for my metal shed; the whole back corner of her caved in, and I'm assuming my lawn furniture and lawnmower is now covered with a blanket of cold, icy white. To say we are sick of it is such a huge understatement.
The always busy city of Halifax is a mess. Roads are down to one lane in places, they have adopted a NO-tolerance street parking ban, the buses and ferry service was halted for a full day and a half and their substantial annual snow-clearing budget is over by $10 million. 10 MILLION DOLLARS!
It's so bad here in Nova Scotia that yesterday, this crucial news bulletin was posted on Facebook for all Atlantic Canadians:
PUBLIC HEALTH WARNING released at 3:25 pm on March 18, 2015
If you are returning from Cuba, Mexico or other southern destination, for your own Health take special precautions. Do Not approach someone without a tan and ask how they enjoyed their March break. Serious injury could occur such as a sore throat (from punch to throat), migraines (from Shovel to side of head), Liver damage (well that's your own fault from the all inclusive) and/ or asphyxiation (from being thrown head first into a seven foot snow drift.)
I mean it!
I WILL punch you!
Happy 1st day of Spring, y'all!
