I remember when I saw my EX get run over by a snow plow. Was strange for me as I had never driven a snow plow before.

What grooviness after a grooming may look like:

It's really not about the weight as it is the pressure applied.

Some of the low ground pressure bulldozers (for use around swampy areas) have less pressure exerted than a human walking. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the case with these given how much area the tread has.

Yep, same thing. Treads are long and wide
/scary? no
//stupid? yes!
///pushing snow on the side of farking mountain and he didn't turn the damn thing off before working on it? DUMBASS
////would have been better tag
//awful close, wonder if he has kids?
//darwin wants to know

The grooming machine wasn't driven by a one-eyed stutterer screaming "REVENGE!", was it?

Full-body, corduroy snowsuit. Nice.

That machine must be ancient. All the new grooming machines have interlocks to prevent this sort of thing.

Rough way to go. Not funny.

Nobody go'd, though. So, funny.

Another article mentioned that the driver was a twelve year old kid who was shouting "I WANT MY TWO DOLLARS!!!"
