This was the picture by the light of day.
The small plow that started at 4:30am was joined by two pickups with plows at dawn. When I went to bed, after six hours of plowing, they had just been working on clearing the main passagewaythru the parking lot. The extent of the drifting against the garages... ...was even more impressive in the daylight. Amazing power in the wind.
There's a sidewalk that goes between those two garages.
I guess we got over 15 inches. But I didn't hear if that was on top of the first seven or not? And we had some more today.
I bet you don't miss this, Dad! hehe!
When I woke up tonight they had cleared the sidewalks and the main drag, but still hadn't hit most of the parking spaces or by the garages. Still haven't. There are still some people who haven't gotten their cars out of the parking spots yet. I'm sure they're going to have a sign up telling people when to remove their cars so they can plow the parking space areas. I hope they don't expect people to shovel away those towers of snow in front of their garages?!
Dagan and Leah made it over to his dad's in Henning today. The roads weren't too bad, Leah said. Slippery and slow driving but plowed and not drifted over--more the usual. The storm wasn't as bad east of here, I guess, and that is where they are. They'll be on their way home tomorrow and by that time the roads should be much better.
Lots of Sunday services cancelled in the outlying areas. But I think Fargo-Moorhead is getting back on track. ;)
I've been mostly doing the lite chick mystery reading. :)
