At approximately 1115 Mountain time, a Cirrus SR22 was substantially damaged when, during an attempted go-around, it struck a snow berm
and nosed over.
It was over in a second; she hit a puddle in the middle of the course and her quad ended up atop the snow berm
banking the oval.
Wind and flat light, which affects depth perception and can obscure hidden hazards like snow berms
, should be considered.
She would force her little self, trudging through the snow, hopping over snow berms
, stepping in ice puddles, to get a box placedaeven into tough little Worcester taverns.
A second plow carved a lane so narrow the driver's and passenger's doors on a reporter's car bumped into the massive snow berms

on runway surfaces during cleaning operations.
There is usually 3-foot snow berms
at the gate in late February, Henry said.
