Witless Bay Line 3
A few people have commented on the photos I have been sharing over the past number of days and most are happy that their roads don’t drift in like the Witless Bay Line.
To be honest, most roads in Newfoundland and Labrador are not like this one which is located on high barren ground with strong winds. During a snow storm the drifts get fairly high, but after the road is plowed, snow continues to drift over the snow banks created by snow plows and on this part of the road, the process continues until the banks get very high. Often, this road is closed fro days at a time until they can clear the drifts.
Today’s photos were taken on the Witless Bay Line on March 15, 2004. The drifts of snow in some places were over 10 feet (3 m) high.
Comments are welcome!
