The storm has ended. It's still windy and snow is blowing around, but now the shovelling begins. I bought a scoop to help with the cleanup. It's easier on the back than using a shovel and throwing the snow over snowbanks that are taller than your head. The plow cleared out the street a while ago and the driver had to make several passes to clear the massive amounts of snow. If we recieved the amounts forecast something between 40 and 60 cm of snow has fallen and with winds gusting around 80 km/h there has been a lot of drifting. I think that it will take a while to clear out the driveway. I don't want to go out, even though the sun is shining - with the wind chill it is -23 degrees Celsius. Brrr.
