    While the snowstorms have caused inconvenience for large population centers in western Russia, they have been life-threatening further east in the country. The polar circle city of Norilsk has been buried under 10 feet of snow – entire apartment blocks, markets, stores and offices were buried under snow overnight.

    Banks of snow were as high as two people put together, reaching the second-story windows of some apartment buildings. Cars, stores, garages were blocked. Norilsk metropolitan workers were forced to dig passageways through the snow banks to create access between the outside world and the barricaded city.

    Somewhere there's a property manager threatening a contractor cause his lot wasn't cleared at 8:00AM

    There's probably plenty of reasons to dig the car out besides driving it. When the loader comes by, the car is less likely to get crushed. Probably not good for the car to be that buried regardless. If you don't dig it out before the snow melts then it could be a real problem.
