Two truck drivers like Warren Stevenson have been cleaning up the aftermath of Mother Nature since Saturday. Some spent 24 hours on the clock.

"10, 10:30-ish in the morning, and I got home at 7 o clock this morning, slept for a few hours, now it's back at it," said Stevenson.

While venturing out to rescue stranded cars last night, he had a close call.

"I got another call out to a stranded vehicle right off of Sheyenne Street on the interstate, and there was a county vehicle there too, and he almost got hit by a semi, our truck almost got hit by a semi," he said.

Even though the snow stopped falling, his job was far from over. Everywhere he looked he saw people in the ditch.

On the drive out to Grandin, WDAY saw five cars stuck in the snow.

"A lot of people that have four-wheel drive seem to think they can go anywhere at any speed, but you'd be surprised at all the four-wheel drives we pull out of the ditch," said Stevenson.

Despite what some may think, ditches are not where most of the calls take them.

Most of their time has been spent pulling cars stuck in parking lots.

It's Stevenson's first time pulling cars out of the snow with a tow truck this weekend. He started at the company a month ago.

After this, he may very well turn into a pro.

Tow truck drivers want to remind you that if you call for a tow, be specific about where you are.
