    snowed monday about 3 inches, then snowed like a mother tues into wed.

    i spent all day wed battling 4-6 foot drifts. it sucked, took 30 minutes to do each driveway. THEN, the people in the country started calling for emergency help, and it was absolutely insane! didnt get any pics, but i had drifts as high as my truck and 15 feet deep that i had to dig, push and pull and fight my way through.

    I got stuck a bunch of different times, i think my tranny mount is broke. but i made some serious coin!

    Tues/Wed here = 16 plus inches of snow with 50 mph wind gusts. (Monday we had two inches). It's getting old fast. (Des Moines, IA)

    This morning I was going into work to plow again..........girl on a cell phone drove into my Chevy Avalanche (personal vehicle) which is my pride & joy. Sometimes it seems that "life ain't fair". I was heartbroken after seeing the damage she caused. THEY OUGHT TO BE A LAW (if you know what I mean).

    I'm guessing you're talking about Paulina. I was raised on a farm close by (near Gaza), and my Dad went to school in Paulina. I watched our local Des Moines TV stations report this fire. My folks are retired in Primghar, but my brother runs our family farm, I'll be up for Christmas, and my folks want me to check out the destruction in downtown Paulina. It's a very sad deal. I heard there were over a dozen fire departments that responded. Take care, Larry

    This last week was a great week to start the season! After working all week I am bored this weekend waiting for more snow! Carroll was pretty much well shut down for 2 days.
