B.C.’s Interior was recently hit with a trace of snow, however, that recent snowfall pales in comparison to winter on Canada’s east coast this year.
The snow drifts in Cape Breton Highlands National Park have been shared across the internet this week as they continue to grow nearly four metres tall.
Where are these massive snow banks ? Standing almost 15 ft you’ll find them in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The sea effect snow has greatly contributed to these ! thanks @J_R_Gwinn for the photo ❄️😯❄️ #ShareYourWeather pic.twitter.com/9eZ5HZF41a— Rachel Schoutsen TWN (@RachelSchoutsen) January 8, 2019
Boarding along both coasts of Nova Scotia's northern tip, the National Park's snowfall has caused some chaos for the region.
According to The Weather Network, the stretch of highway connecting the two coasts has already been closed six times more than last year and 17 times in total.
Thanks to Johney Buck for sharing this photo of the North Mountain on Cape Breton Island from yesterday (Jan 4th). Looks like more snow tonight according to @KalinMitchelCTV— Nova Scotia Webcams (@nswebcams) January 5, 2019
