Newfoundland Snow Has Completely Buried Some Homes In Gander

The amount of snow is astounding.

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.
