    Too much snow!

    Every winter it happens and this weekend was the time. The snow accumulation is so deep that I can not drive the last half mile to get to my house. Oh well, that's what I have my snowmachine for and my snowshoes. By next May, I hope to be able to park my truck in may garage once again.

    Re: Too much snow!

    Sounds like you either need a snow plow on your truck or a bigger truck. They sell used Army 5 Tons pretty cheap around here.

    The lower 48 terminology is snowmobile, the Alaska terminology is snowmachine, the eskimo terminology is sno-go.
