Thinking about the snow in Boston and the discussion at Shabbos 5a, if there was more than 10 tefakim (handbredths) of snow on the ground, would a reshus hayachad (private domain) extend from the soil or the top of the snow? If the streets were plowed, could one drag a sled along the top of the snow 10 tefakim plus higher than the street without violating Shabbos, or throw a snowball that would land on the top of the snow?
