It is an amazing amount of snow down here... an ocean of snow in the back yard. I wish I had snow shoes.
Regarding upper entrances, I have always used those for ventilation, and now have even better reason to. My understanding is that snow breathes so it is OK for an entrance to be snowed in for a week or so. A few weeks?
What is different for us this time, is that usually snows like this are followed quickly by warmer weather, and we are not only expecting 4-8 more inches tommorow, but near freezing all week.
