Mountains of Snow: Ottawa Snowbanks March 2008

Here is a photo of me beside one of the bigger snowbanks in the neighbourhood. I am 5' 9" and this snowbank is at least twice my height. The car that is pulling up behind me belongs to my friends who are just arriving back from a southern cruise. I think they were a bit overwhelmed with what has happened since they left last week.

The second picture is of their street, but the photo doesn't even come close to what it looks like being there and seeing those huge snowbanks between each of the driveways. Before the snowplows came there was only room for a single vehicle to drive. It was feeling a little claustrophobic as you drove down the street. From the car you can't see the houses, just big white walls of snow as you drive slowly along.

I think the worst part of this whole storm was that it hit on a weekend so we didn't even get a day off work. Isn't that just the way? The biggest storm of the winter and it cuts into my personal time.
