      It could have been worse.

      Weather forecasters had been calling for as much as 25 centimetres of snow from a snowstorm that blew into Quebec Wednesday afternoon, but this morning Environment Canada told CJAD news that as of 5AM we had received just over 16 centimetres  and only trace amounts will fall until skies start of clear this afternoon.

      Roads and highways are all snowcovered  and passable this morning, but strong winds with blowing snow are possible on open stretches.

      There were no major accidents on the roads.

      Intercity bus travel is problematic in eastern Quebec where the storm is still raging this morning and Orleans Express says it expects delays and cancellations.

      There are flight disruptions at Trudeau Airport today with cancellations and delays  to the Maritimes as well as, New York, Newark, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago.

      Via Rail is not reporting any problems but is advising travelers to check their arrival and departure status.
