I had a picture from my place years ago that looked like that. The snow had drifted up just like that!

Now I think I've seen something worse than a salesman at the door!

After last year's so-called winter, it's nice that it's returning to "normal" on the US and CND prairies. Thankfully I don't have to experience it. DB would ask about the white stuff (is that salt?) and report in his bare feet that it was 78 at the home office

Picture made the national news in our area last night. 9 last night, calling for snow every day for the next week. Richard

I have seen this scenario before. Always wondered, How do you get out of the door? Wife would kill me if I started shoveling snow inside the house. Can you dig a tunnel?

On the plus side - as long as it's not so thick on the roof that you have to worry about structural issues, it will insulate the house from those winds.

There have been instances in this country, where the snow storm was so intense and heavy, that residents had to climb out of an upstairs window in order to get the yard cleaned up and the door shoveled out!
I was gone out to Detroit for a couple days, and while I was gone, the big lake froze completely over! I guess we will have ice fishing after all!
