    Going to upload some pictures and videos of Storm Nemo. Feel free to add your photos from around your area. It wasn't that bad probably 12-24 around the area.

    Looks manageable at least.

    One thing I noticed is no drifting to really speak of. After our blizzard a couple of seasons ago, we had 12'-20' drifts on the backside of large commercial buildings and out in the out-lying farm country where the snow was allowed to move.

    The winds really never picked up like they expected. If they had it would have been a completely different clean up. A couple weeks back the winds gusted up to 60 mph and had very little snow and even the smallest amount of snow created a whiteout. If we had those winds we would have had the 12'-20' drifts.

    I was lucky not to have drifts but other areas around here had plenty of driftage.

    37 1/2" here.

    Wow i like the pictures, some crazy drifts there! I hope you guys can find some time to rest and hopefully all your customers don't lose there cool with all ya guys. A storm like that would take the normal plow route and times it by 10 or more.

    It helps tremendously that it came over the weekend. But we were actually in pretty good shape this morning. We were prepared and had everything done that we needed to except a few residential. Had it been a week day, I would have called out my father in a third truck as backup to make sure we got everything done on time. Can't have unhappy customers!

    This was a nice storm but traction sucked, slush under the snow so I kept track of how many times I got stuck, 20! This was the first time plowing with this truck and I couldnt have been happier.

    we'll see you boy's tomorrow, me and 12 guys and six trucks are four hours out. were coming to get a piece of NEMO. YEAH. Way we figure it is there is thousands of people there that don't have account set up but there still gonna need plowed out. even at 30.00 a drive its still a small fourtune to be made.

    if it don't snow here we go there.
