    Forget it
    A snow blower would be your best bet

    4' would be hard on a good working plow

    Your description reminds me of some of the contraptions I've seen on here. They didn't work, either. If there are no snow plows around, try calling a construction company or a gravel/sand pit. They would likely have a front end loader to come and bail you out. Like MANX said, 4' would be too much for a pick up with a plow. I wouldn't even try it. I'd have been out there plowing several times by now.

    From Beckley to Morgantown...

    Made the trip from Beckley to Morgantown yesterday around noon. The North of WV deffinately got it alot worse as far as accumulation. All we got in Grandview was alot of wind and a real hard ice type snow that could be walked on. Just thought I would add my 2 cents. 4 foot of snow, I doubt she is from Beckley :)
