    Here are some shots taken the last few days. Had some pretty major drifting in spots. Some residentials drifted around the garages and walks. Had one commercial building where the drift was over our head. Spent a some time digging out so the door could be opened and then blasted through from the inside.
    Overall a pretty healthy storm Had a solid 12-14" spread evenly through the area. My blood pressure has finally dropped a little today so I thought it would be a good time to upload some pics.

    Enjoy...
    Oh, and no ridiculing on "I'd of put the snow here", or "That ain't snow, one time I plowed 60" straight for 10 days." It was a freakin blizzard so some stuff probably got a little messy. It is what it is...enjoy the pics.

    3 county plows stuck in culdesac. One got out and down the road, other two still burning the tires.

    Yeah the factory door was fun. I usually don't take time for pictures but decided to bring the camera along this storm. We're heading back tonight to clean out some loading docks w/ a skid steer and move some piles around. Anybody say Spring???

    It's a toro Powerclear 210R I think. To be honest I would have to look to be sure I just bought a couple this year and haven't really used either. They did a he'll of a job with these drifts though. Best blower for $499 probably. For a 2 stroke I couldn't believe how well they lugged down. Quite a but of power for such a little unit.

    Nice pics! So how close to live to Indiana? I noticed your profile says you live in MI. So do you have contracts for Indiana as well or did you just come down for the storm?
