SUMMERSIDE, Prince Edward Island, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- A Canadian man said it took him about 6 hours to dig a tunnel through the snow from his Prince Edward Island front door to his driveway.

Marcel Landry, 26, of Summerside, said he found himself snowed into his home after a Valentine's Day weekend storm dumped 3 feet of snow on top of the already significant snow around his house, so he decided to try digging his way out using a hockey stick and a broken plastic shovel.

Landry said it took him about six hours to tunnel the 25 feet to his car. He said his fiancee would periodically use the key remote to honk the car horn to he could ensure he was headed in the right direction.

"I was coming in every now and then to get her to use the car keys to beep the horn and I'd go back in the tunnel to listen and see a light flashing and know in which direction to dig and then I'd probe the hockey stick to see if I was getting close as the horn got louder," he told ABC News. "Finally I found the first car, 25 feet in."

Landry said it took an extra week to actually get the cars out of the driveway.

"We just got the cars out on the 21st, last Saturday, after almost a whole week of shoveling and having fun in the snow," Landry said.
