No one in Canada should be complaining about the cold or snow. Not unless you’re in Newfoundland and Labrador, that is.

Eastern Canada has been hit hard by the snow this year, and we’re still more than a month away from officially saying hello to winter.

In fact, one place in Labrador has had a dumping of 139.6 cm of snow since September. That’s nearly a metre and a half.

That place is Happy Valley-Goose Bay, and it has the honour of the Canadian city with the most snow so far this year.

The Weather Network

According to the Weather Network, while the Eastern province is used to snow early in the season, this actually marks the most snow on record for this short time frame.

The Network stated that Happy Valley-Goose Bay picked up nearly 85 cm in October alone, with that total of 139.6 cm measured by November 11. These numbers smashed previous October records, which all sat around 60 cm, in 1999, 1996, 1962 and 1944.

Here’s what Happy Valley-Goose Bay looks like right now:

Wonder how many snow days they’ve already had…

And while it may look terrifying and freezing, it’s comforting to know that somewhere, someone may be seeing their first snowfall… and that, at least, is heart warming.
