Just like many Northlanders, Chris Sundbom spent his morning digging out.

"Started off about 6:30 this morning doing mine and took a couple of hours to do that. I did all of the plowing, shoveling, and snow blowing," he explained. 

He then had to go to work.

"It was about chest-high walking through coming in this morning." said Sundbom.  

His business is T & C Hardwood Solutions. They were finishing up a job at a home so they had to shovel a path to pack up their equipment.

The snow came fast and hard, forcing many people to shovel more than sleep.

"I quit at about midnight last night and I started an hour ago," said Janelle Miller.

Heavy winds drifted snow, hiding cars and most anything under four feet.

William Koivisto tackled a drift taller than him.

"Just trying to open up the sidewalk from the garage to the house, it's the most I've seen here for years," he said.

Now with round after round of snow, the big question is, where do we put it all?

"There's nowhere to put it anymore," Miller explained.

"All year I've just been plowing and now today I had to go to snow blowing just to get it up and over the snow banks," said Sundbom.
