    Here are some pictures from a two day storm that rolled in on Christmas eve and lasted until early this morning. Three feet of fresh that was blown by 40mph winds and drifted to 4-6+ feet, we will be dealing with this one for a while. Enjoy...Jeff

    Notice the large SMI Thrower ahead of me.

    The mountains of Southwest Utah, elevation 8000-11,000 feet. The snowmobiling is good right now, wish I was out doing that instead getting roads open. Take care...Jeff

    Here is what I would rather be doing, a picture from last year in front of my house.

    How does the SMI thrower know where he is going? Or is he just making a new road as he goes? :D

    Just got home from moving more snow and had an EMS call thrown in for good measure.

    I feel very fortunate to be able to live here and never take it for granted, we also enjoy it to the fullest when not working.

    Some of my guys have V's on the front of their pick-ups and they work great, I wish the one on the front of my truck was a V.

    Yes sir! Shaping up to be a good winter.

    LOL. He is a local boy who has been here longer than me and just knows the area. None of the roads are marked so that type of knowledge is invaluable.

    Some of our sub contractors that come up from the closet town, which is 30 miles away end up off course and it is usually off the side, or in a hole.

    Thanks! I will pass that along to the guys who bust their, you know what.

    Hopefully we will have the roads widened in time for the next one.

    Here are a few more pictures taken today. Just about everything is punched open and now the widening begins and the clearing of the Fire Hydrants. Thanks for all the replies...Jeff

    Well I had some more images but I guess I have too many posted, still learning this board.

    Wow. I'd be scared to step outside with that much snow... unless I was on a sled! That's nuts. Good for you guys for keeping things under control!
