It was like Light-Speed-Quick! One second I'm driving, then I'm onto the shoulder and sinking into a snowy hillside. That snow is at least four feet deep this morning.

Definitely a bummer. I hope you get pulled out promptly and no damage.

If itโ€™s true that misery loves company, I got my license suspended today which I will post about in a separate thread. And yeah, not the way to start out the new year.

PackRat, I forgot to ask: Do you carry a snowblower with you on the truck?

No. Where I'm parked, a CAT 230 with a finishing bucket would be best. I dug out the exhaust yesterday, and after three feet, I had not reached grass or dirt. That was on the leeward side. This morning, the windward side had drifted up to a foot above the bottom of the door.

So, I guess your objective is to keep the exhaust clear? Is anybody from the road department checking on you and other stranded drivers?

First time I've ever seen these and saw 2 in the same lot where I dropped my container at Cargill in Fort Morgan CO:
