    Thought I'd put some pictures up for everyone that's eager to see some snow. I never thought I would believe NOAA, said we could get 14-20" with 22" locally, looks like they are right. Went out at noon to plow and let's just say it took way too long to get it finished, I was not expecting so much snow and there's still more to come.

    Yeah it has been a very long time since we had a good dumping of snow, I can't even remember the last time we got so much in one storm. Think I might end up getting a sled this year lol.

    The motion picture is an animated gif. It's 12 pictures, made them all the same size then used I used http://www.makeagif.com/ to put them all together. I used the faster animation speed so it would play better, I was plowing slower then it shows though.

    I'm in Jackson County, right on the line and north of where they said it was going to be the heaviest snow. I just went out to check now and we have about another 12" on the ground and it's starting to drift a bit. Looks like even more is on the ground then when I plowed the first time, bad thing now is that it looks like it's packing and sticking better.
    Looks like I'm going to be heading out to plow again :nod:

    I was a nice guy tonight. Someone was stuck on the street byto my house at 10 pm.

    I had the tractor in the garage and went and pulled them out. The street is drifted ~2' deep. Not real cold but windy and snowing. Don't want to see the temps in the am.

    Wish we got all what you have, it started raining about 2 pm, stopped about 12am, then switched to snow, so we'll see what we get.

    Here's a few more from the second time out, I do think we got around another foot of snow. The windrows were getting so big, about 2 or 3 feet high, I just gave up and started pushing it off to the side and into the woods. I'm almost out of room to put all the snow, the yard is nothing but snow piles. More pictures to come later on :)

    I just got done pushing some snow myself. This is by far the worst storm we have had in years. It is cold out, but the snow is packing with the wind. It will take a few days to clean this up.

    Post office in Oakdale, MN. The drift you see along the building is directly over the front entrance walkway.

    Talked to my uncle that plows residentials in the city. He said he had been up since 0300 this morning plowing and it was miserable. Hod gotten stuck 7 times today since there was so much snow. He also said that there is too much there is no where to push it anymore!
