GREENFIELD — There wasn’t much that Inskeep Ford general sales manager Patrick Dunn and company could do Monday as yet another bout of snow and ice bore down on Hancock County.

After inevitably eclipsing the record for snowiest winter on record during the weekend, Monday afternoon’s weather continued this season’s repetitive dance on local car lots and everywhere else snowstorms put a dent in people’s business.

“Every time it snows, we have to brush off every car, move each row of cars to plow, salt and then move the cars back,” Dunn said.

Inskeep has set a record of its own this year, as central Indiana builds on the new standard of 51-plus inches of snowfall. (And that was before Monday’s storm brought more.)

 “Our (snow) plow bill is a new record,” Dunn said. And the company’s salt bill has tripled over last year as well.
