We need to talk about what's going on in Newfoundland — specifically, the epic amount of snow residents are battling in the north and central parts of the province.

In Gander, there was a record-breaking 238 centimetres of snow recorded on the ground Wednesday, smashing the province's previous 2004 record of 174 centimetres.

Judging by video from meteorologist Eddie Sheerr, Ogilvie Street in Gander has been hit pretty hard, with the snow reaching the roof of — or in some cases, completely burying — every home.

Story continues below:


In videos Sheerr posted to YouTube (above) and Facebook Live (below), you can hear the constant drone of snowblowers as people attempt to dig out their houses, sheds and vehicles.

Many people posted mind-blowing photos to social media. It's hard to wrap your head around the amount of snow — especially when other parts of the country are starting to enjoy spring temperatures.

But leave it to Newfoundlanders to dig up some fun in an otherwise depressing start to spring.

This drift has been building all winter over our driveway.. it's officially ridiculous. Another blizzard survived. 🌨
