EDMONTON, Canada – A few hours of heavy snowfall blanketed streets and snarled traffic in and around Edmonton on Wednesday, reducing visibility to almost nothing and causing dozens of collisions in snowy intersections. CTV meteorologist Josh Classen said “the last time Edmonton had this much snow fall in one December day was on Dec. 4, 2009, when 16 centimetres fell in the city.” “The snowfall added about 15 more centimetres of fluffy snow to some areas around Edmonton. With the snow that was already on the ground, the total snow depth in Edmonton is about 20- 25 centimetres”, he said.
