    Some pictures and a short video clip of my adventures over the last couple days.
    We got 20-22" in about 36 hours. It was windy the whole time, some gusts over 50mph.

    I was in my duramax, the black Ford is my buddy Dan.
    08 F250 CC/SB Lariat. 6.4/auto. Spartan Tuning with DashDaq, 4" down pipe back straight pipe. Whelen 90 watt hide-a-way strobes and my extra dual rotator lightbar. 8' Western Unimount on an ultramount conversion.

    I have no idea where this suv was going, the east bound lanes are the ones you can see on the far left.

    Small tractor was knocking the edges down so they weren't taller then the snowblower.

    Nice pics, we had a little less around these parts. Are running any gussets?

    wow you guys really did get hammered!!! I had a skid steer sitting here thinking we were going to get 12"+ and drifting then they changed it to "wintry mix" and we ended up with almost 2" of ice. It sucked.

    Hope you made bank!
