Most people often love winter and snow, but the truth is that snowstorms can sometimes cause many problems, especially on the roads. Recently there has been a fairly strong snowstorm in Canada, which has caused many people to have trouble even leaving their homes, as there is currently a lot of snow around most houses. In this case, you can see how the snow already covered almost the entire entrance of the garages of this house, with approximately 90 centimeters of snow. This happened in Paradise, Newfoundland, Canada, on January 17, 2020. Opening the garage door shows the dramatic revelation of the result!

Authorities declared a state of emergency in the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador before a major winter storm left significant snow accumulations. The state of emergency was maintained on Saturday during the morning the capital of San Juan Terranova, as a result of a violent snowstorm that buried under a record layer of snow, considered by various local media as historic. Cars and some homes "disappeared" under large accumulations of snow, caused by winds that at times exceeded 100 kilometers per hour. From last Friday, December 17 in the morning it was known that a significant amount of snow was rapidly accumulating in the airport area, presenting accumulated over 70 centimeters in various parts of the city, in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Local authorities recommended that people avoid leaving their homes, ordering the closure of shops and businesses, prohibiting the movement of vehicles that did not belong to emergency services. The Mayor of San Juan Terranova, Danny Breen declared that "anyone who was outside their home, needed to turn, return home and stay there until the state of emergency arose."

The intensity of this storm is cataloged "unprecedented" for a region that is used to intense gusts of wind and significant accumulated snow. Reportedly, the last time that San Juan de Terranova was forced to declare a state of emergency was in 1984, as a result of an ice storm.

The Canadian Meteorological Service warned through its forecast that the Avalon and Bonavista peninsulas, in the southeast of the island of Newfoundland, would be the ones that would be most affected by the winter storm, since according to the analysis of the information, the fall was expected of more than 70 centimeters of snow.

Under the hashtag snowmaggedon2020, various users reported on social networks the peculiar situations they had to suffer as a result of this impressive amount of snow recorded: cars and houses buried under the snow, freezing of the pavement, multiple shapes and figures made with snow, among others.

The northern hemisphere is in the winter season, for many who live in polar and extratropical latitudes is the time when their lives are at risk. All this shows that, although the snow is usually wonderful, other times it can cause a number of problems. This family will have to wait until the snow level drops to get out of the house!
