    I'd say up until last night we had gotten a total of 6" of snow all winter. Last night we got(at my house anyway) about 16" of snow...

    A 4x4 Kabota Backhoe is my new best friend in the snow :D

    yeah i had been hearing like 3-12(depending where you looked) and expected like 2". Cool surprise. Really wish I had a four wheeler so I could go play on the roads.

    Probably more like 10-12" just piled up on these boards big time.

    2wd C2500 daily driver, lots of fun in this stuff.

    My new best friend, haha.

    [​IMG]
    To park the 2wd I had to back down this driveway, pull onto the street, back down the street about 100 feet, get a running start, whip into the driveway(slid a little and had to save it from tagging the big tree on the right at the end of the drive) and run up the driveway(lost steam about where the picture was taken, then slide into my spot where you saw it parked. I literally slid into that spot. Hope I left dad enough room.

    We didn't get much on Friday but it rained the night before and froze solid. We were headed to Minneapolis from Brookings and took my friend's Acura RSX into the ditch. :(

    Here in Verona, NJ, we got a total of 21"!!! And to make things worse, my folks are in Mexico and I was away all weekend. I just love to come home to my driveway being completely plowed in. And by now the snow is nice and wet and heavy......

    thats why I have a 7.5' plow on my truck. My road is usually the last to get plowed out, and my driveway is WAY to long to shovel so I just plow it all out.

    You found a plow???

    Bought a plow for your truck??---Or did you make one yourself??..:ears:


    We got between 12-20" in my area sunday,in only 12 hours!..it drifted badly due to high winds,and most places had drifted 2 to 4 feet deep..the snow was light and fluffy though,and despite being labelled a "blizzard",I have seen and lived through many others that were MUCH worse than this storm was..hardly even slowed things down around here for very long..its going to melt fast,supposed to be 50 here the next 2 days,followed by rain on friday..then COLD!!..:crazy:
