When you see trucks hauling snow away from the street in the middle of winter, have you ever wondered where they were going?
It turns out all that white powder ends up in a snow dump — a designated dumping ground for all the extra snow municipalities can’t deal with. It’s the perfect place to see winter’s wrath firsthand, as the remnants of the entire season are essentially collected there. And it just so happens that we have aerial footage of the one in Moncton, N.B.. The city that, by the way, just recently matched an old snowfall record set back in 1992, after the area was pelted with 160 cm over three days.
So what do you think an entire season’s worth of snow looks like in the Maritimes? We’ll give you a hint:
That’s three stories of snow, folks. Three. Stories. A small apartment building worth of frozen condensation.
Have you ever seen anything like it?
