The December blizzard wreaked havoc on Alberta highways, and also caused huge snow drifts to pile up in front of homes, businesses and on roadways.

People are using shovels, snow blowers and small plows-whatever is handy- to clear doorways, driveways and roadways.

Southeastern Alberta has been hard hit with the Pincher Creek area getting more than 40 centimetres of snow; Lethbridge has been blanketed with about 30 centimetres of snow with another five expected today.

Communities west of Calgary got more than their share too.  Springbank, just outside Calgary’s western limits, is digging out from at least 29 centimetres of snow.

It’s all adding up to one big headache for people just trying to get around.

Here is a collection of photos, sent in from viewers outside of the Calgary area.
