I have about 7' of snow between me and my GTs this am, thats a 10' door on my shop, the snow drifted over the top of the grainary on the left, and theres a couple of Bronco's buried on the right side of the shop as well, might take a day or two to dig out of this one.LOL

Don't you have any GT's with a plow or blower parked at the back door to get out with?

 

Where's that Kubota?

Hard to see in that pic but the 7' of snow is also about 40' wide, Im gonna have to go get the big International from the cattle shed to dig out the shop. Not blowin quite as hard today but still hard enough I think any thing I move will blow back in right away, I think I can get out of the yard with my Bronco but not sure how bad the International will be when I get there, the cattle shed faces same direction as the grainary and shop so it might take awhile to dig it out first...lol.

I think it would be called "tunnling" if you used a GT to clear that mountain of snow. Thanks for sharing.

Whew, Glad I missed out on that one, It makes the foot of white stuff we got look pretty minor.

Kenny it is hard telling what and how much we are going to get if any. If we do just be careful.and make sure you have some extra food and drinks.

Had to drive around looking for low spots but I was able to get the Bronco II out of the yard today, bit of shovel work but not too much, went for a drive to check the local roads and found this snowplow about a mile north of my yard.

This is as far as the wife got coming home just after the storm started, pulled it out with the Bronco a couple hrs ago, dogs just figured the white car was part of the drift so they were on her car at one point...lol
