We have 4 foot fences here in Alberta and if the dog were not so heavy, he could just leave. As well as shoveling out your own area, remind people to shovel out there fire hydrants. Just like an epi-pen....you want it accessable when you need it. Take a look around, are the ones around your house visable? schools? work?

Here in snow country, our fire hydrants have bright orange plastic poles attached - probably 6 feet high. I imagine the poles are for two reasons - one to find the hydrants if covered and secondly so that the snow plows do not hit them. The plows typically clear up to the hydrant (and wreck our grass in the process but it's worth it).

The fire hydrants here in Ottawa also have those huge orange poles. I had never seen them before moving here and I asked about them when we first arrived. When I was told they were because the snow could get that high I swear I almost told the moving van to turn around and take me back to Vancouver.

Hey, we had a big snowfall (two years ago) in Vancouver. We live on a steep hill, and on Christmas day, the snowplow tried and failed four times to go up our hill before giving up and driving away. Nobody drove on our street for a week after.
