Thought you might be interested in seeing what we've been dealing with for the past few days here in Northern Newfoundland! We currently have a snow level of 239cm, (about 8 feet!) and there are news reports tonight of 40 ft drifts in some areas. To add insult to injury, the wind has been blowing at 120+ km/h. But thankfully, mercifully, our electricity has somehow stayed on... so at least we are not freezing to death!
As you can see, homes here on Fogo Island are for the most part buried. All roads, ferries and airports in the province are at a complete standstill, and likely will be for days to come. We are, luckily, well stocked with food/supplies, as we are quite literally stuck, as are most people. The snow has completely sealed the doors and windows, and there is no way to get outside. I would hate to think of what would happen if someone needed emergency medical treatment...
This was the view from our kitchen window about 15 hours ago, looking toward our nextdoor neighbor's house. Can't see anything now though, as all of our windows are now under the snow level! In the first image, if you look closely to the right of the frame, just past our nextdoor neighbor's house, there is another home... it is almost completely buried, right up to the roof. And it has been snowing for 15 more hours since this picture was taken! Holy @#$%!
Wish us luck... It's looking like a short riding season this year!
