Cody White of the Montana Department of Transportation ran into trouble while plowing Highway 464 in northwestern Montana this week.
Watch this video to see how he struggled with the massive snow drifts in his high-powered machine.

This is for all of the “I don’t care if the road is closed, my 4-wheel drive can make it” people. Lol! I spent most of my day trying to help the St. Mary crew punch a hole through the drifts on Hwy 464. It was all fun and games until the Big Kodiak snow blower broke down on me. Fortunately, the rest of the crew was able to punch a hole through the last of the drifts without the big snow blower. I sure hope that people are stocked up and ready to hunker back down because it sounds like the wind will be back to terrorize us for the next two days. We will be lucky to have Hwy 464 and Hwy 89 fully open in the next couple of days.
