    yes, most businesses were closed on monday and tuesday due to the crazy temps so this is one of the last lots I cleared off. I beleive I had cleared off about 4 inches earlier that sunday, this is after an additional 8-10 inches.

    on the last 2 pics, the sun was rising and there appeared to be a rainbow of sorts on the right side of the horizon

    I think everyone in the state of Indiana had a picture of the vertical rainbow of sorts during Monday morning's sunrise. I have a picture of it in my phone :). Those were some grueling days trying to keep up with the snowfall and then the wind.

    Looks like a brutal storm, you made it out alive, good job.

    yea the snow was manageable, the minus 30-40 wind chill...not so much, 30 hours on, 5 hours sleep, then another 20 or so hours. my wife is over me doing snow removal. all this after a decent 6 inch storm a few days prior

    I loved it! I seriously somehow went about 60hrs, had maybe 3-4 10 minute naps on the steering wheel. Felt great all the way through. My wife put in a out30 hrs total in her cherokee then rode with me. I was most proud of my shovel guys! 4 hrs Sunday night, 5 hrs Monday and 1 hr of clean up Monday night. They were troopers and were well bonused!
