MINNEAPOLIS - For about the fourth time in 24 hours Kristen Ryder cleared off her car in Uptown.

"It was like it just never stopped. You looked out your window and it just kept going and going and going. It was crazy," Ryder said.

What's crazy bad for people like Ryder is crazy good for businesses like KENLAWN. Plow operators went nonstop from Sunday morning until Monday morning.

"We are very extremely busy. This has been really a draining grueling snow event for all the guys. I think we put in about 22 hours altogether," KENLAWN owner Ken Lambert said.

Lambert hasn't seen this much snow this fast in more than a year. The heavy snow kept employees at Home Depot busy too.

Shovels and snow blowers had to be restocked frequently to keep up with demand.

"We're doing everything we can to make sure we're ready and we have shipments coming every day," Plymouth Home Depot employee Jason Bergland said.
