My roommate was shoveling yesterday (I did it the first 3 times), and he was out there for over an hour and some neighbor came with his bobcat and took care of everything in 5 minutes, I felt bad.
The wind kept most of the snow off of the highway.Â Visibility was horrible, but the snow did not pile up unless it was a section of highway not exposed to winds (which is almost never on a ND highway).The weather was no good.Â Between my neighbors and I our driveway was blown out 4-5 times during the lulls.Â Even with the blower it took a fair amount of time.Â Got out on interstate as soon as it opened and I'm still not sure what the hold up was.Â The road was in great shape and while we had huge snowbanks in town there wasn't much along the road.Â I think they just didn't want to pay the extra to have people manning the plows over the holiday
Not cool. Tonight its supposed to hit here.Well I tried this morning, power went out on me in the shower, then off and on this morning. Tried heading in, but they had the road closed down from low hanging power lines and semis hitting them. Kinda glad though because when I got home it started to snow already. Hope people are bundled up. I think this is going to be a big one. :andy:
