The blurb said Newfoundland. Probably run of the mill weather up there.

It was in Newfoundland and that isn't run of the mill. This was a record snowstorm for them. However, I don't understand anyone terming it "terrifying". Boston got 27 inches of during the Blizzard of 78. St. Johns got 30. The snow drifts are impressive but if you stay off the road it's not that big a deal, just a pain to dig out.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

That looks really cold. But imagine what us Floridians are going through when you have to be aware of the iguanas warnings? They can fall from the trees and knock you out cold! [emoticon]

St. John's is still under a partial curfew 5 days later. It's very hilly there and that complicates the issue. Probably one person dead.

Several years ago at our place on top of the mountain in MD, we had 2 snow storms , 2 days apart, that dumped about 5 feet of snow and 30 mph winds. Drifts about 8 feet. Kubota tractor with a 4 foot snow blower cleared out half mile driveway in about 2 hours. That said once I got to the end of the drive, all I saw was snow as far as the eye could see. No roads to speak of. It was 3 days until they plowed a single lane on our road. But I work from home and had a whole house generator. We moved south for a reason but it was kind of fun at the time.

This storm was in Newfoundland. We got 39" of snow in just under 24hrs. This was on top of the 65" we've had since Christmas Eve. With the snow we had winds of 110mph, not kph. It was described as a blizzard wrapped up in a hurricane. This was the most snow in a single day since record keeping was started here. We had some drifts that 10ft deep. One thing to keep in mind is the fact that St John's has very narrow streets, leaving no room to put all the snow. It has to be picked up and moved, not just plowed out of the way.

You're right, one person died when he tried to walk between 2 small communities during the peak of the storm and got lost. His body was found today by volunteers performing the search.

Below is a link to copy into your browser. It has some photos of how much snow we got.
