Plows and tow trucks were busy, but thankfully not many ambulances on Friday as people in Pictou County woke up to find themselves buried in as much as two feet of snow in places.
The on-ramp to the westbound lane of Exit 24 on the Trans-Canada was temporarily closed Friday after two tractor-trailers got stuck. No one was injured though said Const. Bryce Haight.
Overall he said residents passed the storm without any major incidents.
“There wasn’t a whole lot of cars off the road,” he said.
The worst of the trouble seemed to be at the on and off ramps which had more snow on them than the main routes.
Both he and New Glasgow Regional Police Const. Ken MacDonald said they had no major accidents.
“I think a lot of people heeded the warnings to stay off the roads,” MacDonald said.
Schools and many offices were closed for the day.
Environment Canada is forecasting two to four centimetres of snow in the form of flurries later today. Sunday will be cloudy.
