After the Storm
A violent blizzard hit the Avalon Peninsula yesterday accompanied by 110 kilometre an hour winds. All over the city, roads and cars were buried. The storm dumped 40 - 50 centimeters of snow, with drifts reaching the tops of garages and sheds. My driveway received 3 feet of snow plus the snow from the snow plow.
I ventured out early with my snowblower and later my good neighbor, Dave tackled the drifts in his driveway with his vintage Honda snowblower.
