IN THE PAST 10 DAYS, WE HAVE PLOWED OVER 5 FEET OF SNOW!
Go hug your plow person - or at least give them a friendly wave and thumbs up. Considering that in an average winter, we plow a total of 12 feet, that puts it into perspective how hard all the plow people, private and municipal, have been working the past week and a half. In Silverthorne, the snow pack went from 52% to 110% in TEN DAYS!
Today, we were pushing not only 12"-18" of heavy, wind-driven snow, but also battling the 3-ft ice berms pushed up by the road plows. The municipal plows have no choice but to push up the berms - otherwise they'd never get all the roads cleared. But it does make for a lot of extra work on an already intense day. We have a few days of sunshine on tap now, which will give us time for cleanups and push-backs. Get out there and enjoy all that fresh snow, and be safe in the back country, the avalanche danger is extreme. #snowplowing #silverthorne #takingcareofbusiness #behindtheplow
