    Its a dpw truck so a few yanks with a loaded 9ton and she was out. She didnt even get to see the big snow, parked it around 8pm friday night.

    I have two good videos opening up that morning, 30+ inches with a 2009 freightliner, cannot seem to get it to upload

    So did you just not put it in park?? did it slide on ice?? Or what caused it to end up there.

    My first thought was sliding on ice but the photos show dually tread prints in the snow, not skid trails.
