Letter: Legendary snowfall makes for a Great Snow Wall


It looks like the Great Wall of China has come to our neighbourhood.

We can no longer see our neighbours from our house, as this huge wall of dirty snow at the old C E Barry school property is blocking our view.

The snowplows have worked pretty hard in making this wall, and even worked all night, keeping us awake for several nights with the noise of their machines.

I wonder what is going on there? Is there another film crew coming? An ice castle? A winter playground?

Please, Superman, come and vaporize this snow to help us to see our beautiful view again.

UPDATE Jan. 7:

I now see that this site is being used as a snow-dumping ground, so we have to wonder if the sewers are capable of handling the excess water when it thaws, or will we have flooded basements as well?
