PHOTOS: The amount of snow in Newfoundland today is actually kind of terrifying

British Columbia definitely dealt with some inclement weather over the past week or two, but Newfoundland is putting us to shame.

The country’s easternmost province has been absolutely battered by a storm today, with the capital St. John’s even declaring a state of emergency.

Meteorologists called for 70 centimetres of snow, which is just over two feet, but it appears as though a lot more than that fell.

It’s apparently been dubbed the storm of the century and we certainly won’t argue with that, because we’re very happy that we’re witnessing it from afar.
