When I bury them, I bury them.
Fortunately, I have a neighbor with an even bigger tractor. And a chain.
Oh, and just after this happened, our electricity went out.
What a fun day.
By the way, want to know the best way to measure snowfall?
Collect it on a tabletop!

We've gotten about a foot and a half of snow thus far here in Bland. So we're pretty much stranded until further notice. But we prepared and will be fine.
Chaos ensued elsewhere though.
I was driving down I-77 last night and the mess was about as bad as I've ever seen (and I drove Michigan roads for years). The worst was in southern West Virginia where cars were off the highway by the dozens and trucks were jackknifed up and down the stretch from Princeton to the state line.
And not a plow in sight the whole journey.
I felt sorry for all those stranded motorists.
My SUV (all wheel drive) is now buried in snow at the bottom of my drive way after failing to make the climb when I got home. I'll go to work plowing it out this morning. Wish me luck.

I got a call from my boss this morning. He's been stranded on I-77 (the West Virginia Turnpike) south of Beckley since early yesterday evening. 15 hours? He tells me there are hundreds of people there with him on a stretch of highway where there are no exits, no restaurants, no hotels, no refuge.
Will the national guard be called in before people start dying?
