TRURO - While another winter blizzard has come and gone through the area, cancellations and clean up continue into Thursday.

Students with the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board can go back to bed if they've crawled out of it yet this morning as all classes within the board are cancelled due to road conditions.

Students at Ecole acadienne de Truro also have another snow day thanks to Wednesday's blizzard.

The Nova Scotia Community College Truro campus is set to open at 12 noon, however the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus is closed.

Road conditions in the Town of Truro are snow covered, however the majority seem to be plowed. Those using sidewalks may find themselves jumping over piles of snow at the end of the sidewalks, as plows have blocked most of the paths.

Other cancellations announced before 7 a.m. include the Debert Child Development Centre Pre-School, and both Maggie's Place Family Resource Centre and My World of Learning at the community college are closed until noon.

The major highways throughout Colchester County are partly covered, so motorists are reminded to drive with care.

The forecast for Truro for Thursday includes a mix of sun and cloud with 40 per cent chance of flurries. Temperature will be steady at around -10 C.

According to the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal's Twitter account, "all winter gear is out across the province."

While many people may be grumbling about how much snow has fallen, Ski Wentworth tweeted they have about 40 centimetres of new snow. South side trails are open Thursday, and Beaver is "untouched powder. Other trails groomed for carving."
