Fergus Falls can't get a break from the snow

Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV) -- The City of Fergus Falls can't catch a break when it comes to snow. It seems every time there's snow in the forecast Fergus gets hit.

Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV) -- The City of Fergus Falls can't catch a break when it comes to snow. It seems every time there's snow in the forecast Fergus gets hit.

Wayne Nickolauson owner of A1 Wayne's Towing has been going non stop since 4 this morning.

Wayne: "It's just been from one project right to the next, you don't know what you are going to get into when you get there."

Call after call the phone doesn't stop. He's on it 24-7..waiting for the next stuck driver to call.

Wayne: "It's just been like a gauntlet race, one after another. Just when you think you're finished, you're phone goes crazy again and you just go, go, go, and get everybody out."

On one of his busiest days Nickolauson towed 21 cars, and with a winter like we've had this year it's a task to keep up.

Wayne: "Cars in the ditch, side slides, when they get into black ice slides, slide sideways, some are rolled over, some are straight slide in's, people missing their driveways because it's just pure white, they cant see where the end of their driveways are."

While business may be booming for towing companies, people who have to clean up the mess are simply sick of it.

Constance: "Every time I hear the forecast I say this one is going to miss us, but it doesn't, so far."

Constance Adams knew today would be filled with shoveling.

Constance: "I'm thinking I need a couple more inches of height because my banks are getting too tall here, it's hard to shovel over the top."

Although her winter has been filled with fun activities like snow shoeing, she's ready to put away the shovels.

Constance: "Spring is coming, I have faith."

About 2 to 4 inches today, but by the looks of it old man winter isn't done with us yet. So until then The trucks will keep running, and the shovels will be on hand.
