Way too much snow.Got these pics in a e-mail sent to them,then sent to me by someone I know.I don't know the authencity of them but if it's [true] ? .No wonder there fore casting flooding this spring in Manitoba.These pics were taken Jan 5,2011 from a place called Lead North Dakota ,just a little ways South of Brandon Manitoba and Brandon is about 2 hrs west of Winnipeg.I'am pretty sure that my MF 1655 and MF Gc 2300 with the 48" snowblowers would be hard pressed to clean this amount of snow..

That's the kind of snow you expect to see in the mountains, not in North Dakota. If we had to deal with that, I'd have to buy a bigger tractor.

I cann't believe that the little tarp car port,(photo # 8) is still standing. All that snow must be powder and not a heavy wet snow like we used to get in the midwest..

There was an email that was forwarded around lately that had some stuff in it about the snow they got out there. It was crazy. I will see if I still have the email on one of the computers and post it tonight.

One of my neighbors has a little Kubota with a snow blower n it,and I've had to go up three times already this moring to replace broken shear pins .I keep telling her to just ease into the heavy wet snow,but does she listen,noooooooooo.I wonder how many more times I'll have to go up there before she is done?

My neighbour has a couple of those for his muscle cars. I'm always surprised at how resilient they are.

Good night!!!! You can have that! I'll enjoy the sunny, 60-degree weather we're having in NW Arkansas today! (Before it gets back to normal teens and 20's next week.)
