Garage Doorway Completely Blocked During Newfoundland's 'Snowmageddon'

A garage doorway was completely blocked by snow at a home in St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, after a strong blizzard hit the region between Friday and Saturday, January 17-18.

Environment Canada reported that 30 inches of snow fell at St John’s Airport. This surpassed the previous record of 27 inches, from April 1999.

The huge falls combined with strong winds to create deep drifts like the one seen in this video. It shows Alicia Gillespie’s garage door being opened, to reveal snow piled up to its full height.

The blizzard was dubbed “snowmageddon” by many on social media. Credit: Alicia Gillespie via Storyful
