Is this a picture of Ford’s double entry?
Claustrophobia would hit me hard!
I would close the door and hibernate like a bear until spring 🙂
Been there, done that, but I was a young girl when we left ND. so it is an all too real distant memory. We moved to Oregon. It snowed 4 inches, they closed the schools…I thought I had died and gone to heaven.😊
I have never seen anything like that before. That is beautiful and oh crap at the same time. Thank you
I remember in the 1950’s my brother and I were visiting our grandparents in Morgan county and a snowstorm came. Grandpa had to tunnel out on the porch and Dave and I played in caves that we dug out in the driveway. Mom and Dad couldn’t get to us for several days. we had plenty to eat and were warm thanks to the coal furnace so we had a lot of fun.
This reminds me of the Blizzard of ’77 here in the Niagara Region. I was living in Niagara Falls, Ontario at the time. People had to climb out their attic windows to get outside. Traffic was at a standstill. The local citizen’s band radio club acted as a kind of master control center, directing a lot of activities. Food and prescriptions were delivered on snowmobiles. There was snow more than four feet deep on most of the main streets. Some of the shop owners had shoveled a pathway along the sideway so you could get to some of the stores. The pathways were so narrow that a person on a walker or in a wheelchair would not have been able to go down them.
Funny but true if you can get your door open to see picture!My mistake at winter time,sO left the shovel outside I should have brought the shovel inside to shovel my way out!
Just close it and go to bed until March. 😨
I remember as a kid growing up north of Boston, my brother having to crawl out a second floor window to shovel off the porch so we could get out
I hope they got Bread, milk, and eggs….
Thats why people move to Florida!
This happened to us, when we lived at Zenith, blizzard has swirled around our 2story hpuse, buried it up to the second story. We were snowed in for 3 days. The boys had to dig a tunnel, to go do chores. Took a bulldozer to dig us out. After 3 days. We never lost power and had heat. Kids loved it, I couldn’t go to work, we played games, made candies, made snow ice cream, etc.
I have actually done that, and had to wait for the bus driver for schools to shovel me out. There is always an urge to reach through it. I have seen snow with two story homes covered up to the top of the roof. When U get snowed in, in Maine U get snowed in.
Going to have a hard time getting that Dominos delivery.
We did one time when I was a child we lived in Fort Meade Maryland and our neighbors literally between us digging from the house and then digging from the other side of the snow Mound we walked in and out of our house through a snow tunnel for days
That happened once in Ohio. My Dad opened the back door to a wall of snow. It had blown against the door . He tunneled out until he broke through the other side and could knock it down from the outside. Very eerie feeling being closed in like that.
When we lived in Michigan we did, had to climb out the upstairs bedroom window to shovel down to the sidewalk dang those snowstorms and snow blowers!
Shut the door and go back to bed!
This happened on Jan 1st in my hometown when I was growing up..tried to go out the front door into solid newly fallen snow..had to use back door to get out of the house..in Upstate NY.
I live in Michigan & one winteri came downstairs & couldn’t figure why it was still so dark. I opened patio drapes & snow covered entire patio door.
Maybe try going out the back door
in the 60’s in Austin Minn we would have blizzards start up n then the drifts come with the snow. n the snow was drifted up n over the front of the house n over the peak of the roof. we would have to go out the back door n start shoveling snow up to the nabors properties. then that family took over shovling snow from one end of there property to the other end of their property. then the next family get’s to do the same thing shovel snow from one end to the other. before we could even get on the dirt road. cause the snow plow would not come down out dead end road
Lived in Deadwood South Dakota 1 year it snowed so hard our front and back door we’re covered up when you open the door all you saw was snow that’s why I live in Georgia now
I shared this for my Grandchildren in N . Dakota, be ready! Love 💕 you more than you will ever know! Prayers and hugs 🤗
Been there done that…in the NWT. Still have pictures of it and the tunnel my husband dug to the van. One night of snow and he had to climb out the kitchen window, which was now level with the snow. I loved it up there!
But the boss is like, “You’re still coming into work though, right?”
That very same thing happened to our family in Alaska when a snow plow covered our house. Took my parents half a day to dig out to the road. Melted snow in the bathtub and toilet.
I’d love it as long as I still have electric, water and heat. Oh don’t forget cable.
I hope there is a back door. I lived on North Dakota on my grandparents farm. Grandpa had to go out a back window to get a shovel so he could dig a trail to the house. Snow was 6 to seven feet high. Those were the days. Put runners on the farm wagon and hitch the horses up and go visit the neighbors.
I would shut the door and go back to bed
