A strong winter storm driven by 45- to 50-miles per hour winds dumped about 12 inches of snow on Stewartville and the area on Saturday, Feb. 16 and Sunday, Feb. 17, adding height to the already-tall snowbanks along the city's streets. Roger Buck, above, who lives at the 600 block of Second Street Southwest, said the snow in his driveway was at least knee deep, with drifts four to five feet high, after the snow stopped falling that Sunday morning. Buck was dreading the thought of using his small snowblower and shoveling his driveway when he saw Bob Wisch, a professional snow remover, working at the house next door. Wisch agreed to remove Buck's snow, a job that took about 45 minutes. "It would have taken me two days to get through it," Buck said. Buck, who has lived in Stewartville for 51 years, said he couldn't remember the snow being any deeper than it was in Stewartville last week. The Feb. 16-17 snowstorm was a sight to behold, he said. "Every time I looked out the window, I saw the snow," he said. "The northwest wind comes right up my driveway, and it just kept coming and coming."
