Courtney Watson had her work cut out for her blowing snow from her driveway in Murray River Sunday afternoon. The snow had stopped about mid-afternoon in this area but Mother Nature offered up some challenging temperatures that dipped below minus 30 degrees Celsius. A large volume of power outages were reported province-wide in the storm that generated high winds and 40 to 50 centimetres of snow.          Heather Moore photo
