Did you know there is a few difference between the expressions "blizzard" and "snowstorm"? A blizzard has a strong wind with the minimum speed of 56 km/h and has to last at least 3 hours. Also, the visibility must be under 400 m to call it a blizzard. If it doesn't reach these criterias, then it's a snowstorm. Well, you got stucked in a snowstorm, but luckily you found a house not far from the road. It was built for tourists or anyone who's in need. You've waited here for two hours just to make sure. It seems the storm is over, but the door wouldn't open. Probably, it's a bit frozen.
