In Teller County the snow continues to pile up…in Woodland Park there is at least a few feet in most places.

Snow blowers and shovels have become a hot commodity around the area. It took Amy Engleman about one and a half-hours to dig out and she’s not alone. Mark Houthsma had to snow blow his sidewalk three times on Friday.

“We haven't had snow like this in as long as I can remember,” said Houthsma.

And as the snow continues to fall plows struggle to keep up, as do the shovelers at one local gas station. For many it's been a very long day out in the elements.

“I spent most of the day shoveling and pushing cars,” said one resident.

And pushing and pulling cars is something Ben Lumbard knows all too well. He owns a local tow truck business.

“I'll probably be out all night,” Lumbard said.

And with more snow in the forecast it looks like things aren't going to get any easier, at least not for a few days.
