Spring officially arrives on Thursday, but try telling that to residents in Newfoundland and Labrador.
BUT SPRING *IS* COMING, RIGHT? Check out The Weather Network's 2014 Spring Outlook for what the coming season will look like.
"Snow is multiplying exponentially in Ship Cove on the great Northern Peninsula," said one Weather Network viewer who sent in the video above. "This is a driveway in our community."
That driveway was completely covered in snow with a huge drift hanging over the parked vehicle.
Giant snow drifts and blizzard conditions have been reported in several communities.
It's all part of a slow moving system that has brought over 50 cm of snow to parts of Labrador since Saturday.
Blizzard warnings remained in place for some areas Tuesday morning.
"Strong winds combined with fresh snow will generate blizzard conditions this morning," said Environment Canada in the warning early Tuesday.
According to EC, blizzard conditions were expected from Hopedale to Makkovik.
"The blizzard will subside as the trough moves away, however gusty winds will likely continue to generate areas of blowing snow throughout the day," EC adds.
