It’s the last thing any of us is waiting for, more snow, and in the form of a storm no less. White-out conditions and worse are in the forecast for tomorrow, and there’s already more than enough snow on the ground to begin with.
Yesterday easily made the top 3 of worst driving conditions in our 6 winters here in Newfoundland, mainly because of the blowing snow that created snowdrifts that were not only deep, but also stretched out for hundreds of metres a piece along Marine Drive.
Today, it’s still a big mess on the road. Apparently more than half the snow clearing crews have been sent home for some reason, and driving to work is a risky undertaking. In cases like this it’s important to know we are not as unlucky as some, like for example these people in Port au Choix last week.
