Neighbor guys who would normally be trying to sleep in were up early clearing snow using their four-wheelers with plow attached. They were zooming all over the place using the snow-plow excuse to play in the fresh powder. They have so much fun at their task that they even move snow that doesn't need to be moved.

Of course with no tripod the results get a little smeary.

Enough of that.
Better walk back home before the students wake up and try to drive in this stuff.
