Here are some storm update pics. I was out this morning clearing driveways, and we have about 4" on the ground, but we're gonna get hammered with up to 10" this afternoon-night, or maybe even more!:nod:

Looks Like The Heavy Wet Stuff That We Dont Like To See.

It isn't too heavy, but it isn't powder either. The blower only plugged up at the end of the driveway where there was a puddle before the storm came.

The storm just came onshore from Lake Superior here in Duluth. I'd go take a picture, but I don't want to take my camera out in that stuff! Fortunately the state DOT and the city have their plows out in full force and are doing their best to keep up. Hat's off to those guys!

Well, MNdot closed a bunch of state highways tonight and pulled a lot of the plows off the roads. Gov. Pawlenty may call off school statewide tomorrow. I'll be out tomorrow morning cleaning the driveway, but for now just kicking back and eating some hot pizza!

All of I-29 in South Dakota is closed. I-90 east from SIoux Falls, all 12 miles, is closed too.:help:

Blizzard warning for the eastern part of the state. Just a blowing snow advisory here where I'm at.

Duluth has the city plows back out now......with chains. Park Point is still closed. They're working on getting some big old school v-plows in (I'd love to see an Oshkosh or FWD) to bust up the drifts, but I don't think anyone that lives out there will be going anywhere. I currently cannot see my car. I can see a large snow drift where I parked it, however. The snow has tapered off and the winds are dying down so maybe people will be able to clear out as the day rolls on. I know the college is shut down and so is work today though so I have nothing to do but sit back and drink beer. Shoveling can wait. :drinkup:

Here are the updated pics. Here is one with me clearing out the driveway. We have about 11" on the ground, but it's hard to tell with the wind blowing it around.

Got back from cleaning everything out. All we have to do tomorrow is go around and double check everything and just a little cleanup here and there. (That will be an easy day compared to the last 2:nod:

I only took a couple of pics of some residentials. I will post the townhouse pics tomorrow after we get done with the final cleanup.

Oh forgot one last thing - We did not break anything except a coupler fitting for the plow. 10.00 easy fix.

The Duluth News Tribune (http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/photography/includes/gallery.cfm?id=112) has a lot of great pictures. Rather than burning up bandwidth on this site, I'll just let everyone click the link. Park Point in Duluth got absolutely hammered. When a chained up 20 ton 6wd grader with a v-plow gets stopped in its tracks, you know you got hit pretty good.

lol,
we got hammered all right.

Here is a pic of HWY 53 in soup town aka Superior WI. It was taken right in front of the Richard I. Bong museum.

A few stuck motorist.

You had to pick your route carefully or you would end up like this..


I have a few more I'll post around the site.:waving:

Nice looking Jeep!

My son has an 88 YJ.
How do you like using the Jeep for plowing?

It's amazing how we went from below average snowfall for the year to above snowfall averages for the year in the course of one week. I just hope it wasn't too little too late for some of the businesses like the resorts that cater to the winter sports like skiing, snowmobiling, etc.

The jeep works great. We have not had any problems with it. I know some people do not like the idea of using a 7.5 ft blade on jeeps, but this one has workd very well. We mainly use it on residential drives and for backdragging. We usually don't do any stacking with it. The manuverability is just awsome though!! We use the other two trucks for alot of the grunt work.

We get to go out again today and so some roof raking to clear some of the snow overhanging off of some townhouse roofs. A little more more money from this storm:)

How is everybody else doing on this storm?

I would venture a guess at our totals here in Fargo but I was too damn busy pushing it all to get a good look at it! The night it started was my 30th Birthday....yes a dark day indeed... So my G/F threw me a big bash in the presidential suite at the local Ramada.... Needless to say I couldnt drink and enjoy myself much as I continuously stared out the huge picture windows at the endless heavy snowfall. I got up at 4 that morning and started.... Finished at anbout 9pm that night. Up at 4 again on the 2nd, done at 7pm. Up at 6 on the 3rd and done by 9am :) Was happy then! Quite the storm. Broke my riding snowblower.... But it was all good.

Is that the only snow MN has had this winter? Hard for me to believe but that's what I heard on the news the other day.

here's a few from the storm we had last week. Didn't get much for action shots but a couple piles just from my own driveway are fairly big. Didn't have ANY piles 2 weeks ago.
