Oh god, new? Not at all. We live in Manitoba! Ironically, we've had very little snow this year, usually this is normal. It was just the winds causing such a massive bank against the gate - it's nothing for the driveway to have a 4-5 foot drift in it that we have to shovel out from the open fields.
Normally we spend our winters riding in at least a foot of snow, this is our first blizzard of the year. Usually we've had about ten of these by now! I'm sure the horses could have floundered through the bank, but realistically, it's dangerous because we'd be forced to walk through with them and if we trip and fall, we're at the mercy of a floundering horse trying to get through a three foot gate opening.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
