Atlantic Canadians are starting to dig themselves out of their homes today after an epic blizzard dumped a record setting 76.2 cm of snow.

According to the Weather Network, conditions are finally starting to let up in Newfoundland, although a state of emergency remains in place this morning.

People are sharing their photos of what the view from their front doors are, and handing out some tips for shovelling your way out of the house.

Although photos shared on social media of the predicaments Newfoundlanders are facing are showing their positive nature and humour in the situation, things can get dangerous quickly.

The St. John’s Regional Fire Department responded to an avalanche on Friday night that damaged at least one home and resulted in some evacuation.

Luckily, no one was injured.

The St. John’s airport is also not operating, and won’t be until Sunday morning local time.

The Weather Network says that although the snow has started to taper off, the impacts will likely be felt for a few more days.
