Drifting Snow Shutters Snow Drift Festival

Drifting Snow has forced the cancellation of Sunday’s Snow Drift Festival. The event, which organizers hailed as the “only snow drift festival of its kind,” has been rescheduled for late March.

“It’s just not safe out there,” Snow said.

High winds combined with snow cause drifting, experts say.

“Without wind and snow, we’re looking at low-drift probabilities,” said local weather spotter Barry O’Meter. “I’ve been potting weather in these parts for nearly eight months and I have yet to see drifting of this magnitude.”

Drifts, some towering more than 1/20th of a football field, have led to the closure of Out-on-the-Highway Road.
