    My brother kinda missed where the driveway turned left. With nearly 2 feet of fresh snow on the ground, he couldn't see the driveway at all. lol

    this is why you spend a few bucks and mark out your driveways.

    :realmad: Yes, I was in a similar situation last winter in a different driveway. I tried to pull him out with my 08 GMC 2500 and it wouldn't do it. Ended up having a friend pull it out with a ton GMC that had a 2 yard sander loaded.

    Well, hindsight is always 20/20. I've never marked this driveway before, and never had any trouble. Problem was that we had 2 feet of snow in about 8 hours and with the wind blowing, it filled over the driveway so there was no deliniation as to where it was. Another words, a 40cent stake would have solved the problem. :cry:

    It was about half full. I think you're right though, it would have gone over otherwise.

    I told the customer I would come back and fix anything in the spring. He said not to worry about it, and he was upset that he didn't hear us out there to be able to come out and help.

    I think we've all been to Dumb@ssville before. As said above, a simple stake would have prevented the problem in the first place.

    I highly doubt that would have rolled. With storms like this past one I just punch out holes so people can get in and out. No feeling around for edges, pushing stuff way back, anything like that. Keep the risk as low as possible.
