Light at the end of the snow tunnel

March 16 Blizzard

After the March 16, 2015, blizzard

WordPress’s weekly photo challenge this week is Victory. Our most significant victory in the last year was the one over winter. From early February to late March the snow kept coming, one blizzard after another. It was a winter that folks in the northeast of North America won’t soon forget.

The snow blower has done all it can; now to shovel the rest.

Cleaning up after the March 16 Blizzard

The photos above were taken as we prepared to dig out after the big blast of March 16 and half way through the work. The photos below were taken after we had liberated our front door and one of two cars. Thank goodness someone blows out most of our drive. Victory!

The front door is accessible.

The front door is now accessible

    A winter like last year’s comes along once every 10-15 years – where I live. It was an unusual 17C here today but last year it didn’t freeze up until January so you really can’t predict from one year to the next, nor can you predict winter from November. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Gallee, how did you get out when your front door was blocked? Through the roof? (Kidding)

      The door by the first photo opens inwards, and so the first few shovelfuls went straight out a tiny gap in the drift. Usually the snow has drifted away from at least one of our doors, and we have been known to snowshoe from one in the back around to the front to clear the main door.Last year some people had to tunnel to their doors.

  6. This reminds me so much of the time I lived in Ontario ☺

      Yes, it well might remind you of Ontario, though we in the Maritimes got hit much harder than they did last year. Thanks for commenting.
