After February’s record-setting snowfall, 20-foot (6.1 m) walls of white leaned over the plowed roads.
“Residents worked feverishly to keep the snow from swallowing their homes. They dug tunnels and narrow passageways to the street, opened portals to get light through second-story windows, shoveled dangerous weight off their roofs.”
Seventeen feet (5.182 m) of snow fell in February, even more in March.
“My whole house is encased in snow,” said resident Brenda McCann last week. “I’m in an igloo.”
