    Part 2

    More from the homestead. The horses appreciate clearing the feed area so they aren't up to the withers in snow.

    You should send that last picture to Ford. Maybe you'd win a new truck or something. That pic looks like what a Ford was built for. That's so cool looking. Nice truck.

    BTW, stay safe. That's some deep snow. Even in the best of conditions, I'd hate to try to find you if you got stuck!!

    One and a half miles gravel with grades. 40" snow and 20-25 mph winds. Plowed with the storm. Took 4 passes for the road (gonna need a loader to push berms back).

    The PowerStroke and V plow worked VERY well, better than I expected.

    They're always happy to see the man with the feed!

    As for big iron, maneuverability is REAL important up here... but I sure could use a benching wing in storms like this one.

    The horses are very nice. Almost looks like they're saying "Thanks, man!"

    I would rather have a bunch of 12" snow storms than a huge one like that. Those pictures just scream "something is gonna break...somethings gonna break"
