You know what's one of the worst parts of all this snow? Digging your car out in the morning. Here's something worse, though. Doing it over and over. Again and again.

That's how salespeople, turned human shovels, spent Friday morning at Sioux City's Jensen Imports. They've had about 10 inches of snow to clear off the tops of hundreds of cars.  

"We probably have 250 to 300, between service and sales," said Sales Associate Michael Hodgson.

Hodgson says it took about five hours to rid the rides of the white stuff, move them, plow the lot, and then put cars back. It's not easy work, even if the powder was rather fluffy.

"It don't matter how fluffy it is when you get a foot. At some point it's going to feel heavy," said Hodgson.

Others were feeling something else. Namely, drenched dungarees.

"My pants are soaking wet. You can't see it, but they are," said Sales Associate Kari Ludwig.

It's fair to say the snow brought a pang to the dealership's hypothetical posterior.

"Is it a pain in the butt?" asked Reporter Forrest Saunders.

"Well, yeah. You have to get out here and move it," said Used Car Sales Manager Frank Phillips, with a laugh.

What's worse? More snow could be in the forecast for early next week.

"We got to do it again. That's probably the most frustrating and scary part," said Hodgson.
