    Hey guy's found some more old videos from a couple of years ago, I took my mom out the whole day, we were out for about 18 hours. When she came to pick me up at about 1am in the morning to drive me to the shop which was about 10 minuets away she told me she had berried her Jimmy at the end of my road which was about 2km from my house. I thought to my self how the hell did she do that, well when I walked out my front door the snow was level to my front porch.

    I had to walk 2km down the road in knee high snow drifts to get to were she was, and the funny part was there was 3 cars I past along the way that had been abandon over night because they got stuck in the snow drifts.

    It took me 1 hour to dig her out, 20 minuets to drive to the shop, plus I had to walk through the snow again to get to the shop door and spent a good half hour plowing out the drive way just so she could drive her Jimmy to the shop. I had made the worst mistake of not going out earlier and plowing with the storm because I only wanted to plow once instead of twice. This was probably the worst snow fall I had ever gone out in and the most amount of snow because I had let it accumulate over the weekend, none of the spots had to be open until Monday dumb dumb dumb:cry::cry:.

    I worked my Gmc so hard that day that I kissed it on the hood when I was finished because there was a few spots like the one in the video that I thought I had screwed myself and was going to need a backhoe to plow through.

    Lesson learned I will never do that again, as for my mom she was completely wiped from helping me shovel that day. She now has a real respect for what guys like us do to put the bread on the table. Cheerstymusicwesport

    It must have drifted bad... doesnt look that deep in those pics. Speed was an issue there, slow down and it wont blow over your hood so bad.

    Cool vids :drinkup:

    Lucky that looks like dry light snow, if that was wet I hate to think about it.

    Nice job

    It started off light in the middle of the night, but when the sun came out it started to get very heavy, deep and wet.
