A bittersweet business. Sweet when it snows, bitter when it don't.

Hey, could be worse. I could live where there's a constant threat of earthquakes, wild fires, tornados, tsunamis or locusts LOL.

Snow sucks, but if you live where it snows, might as well make some money with it.

We had a 32" snow in the '96-'97 season. I cashed in big on that one. I had an AIG insurance corporate center that paid $1,000 per inch. :)

It was ~5 acres of parking & some sidewalks. They even had a field behind the place we could pile the snow.

I used to do it with 2 F-350's w/ 9' Pro-plows, 2 M/D's w/ Western 10' municipals and my 555 4x4 hoe. Me & 2 helpers.

That was just one of 12 commercial accounts and ~30 driveways.

Why did I quit plowing????? Ohe yeah, now I remember....KIDS!!

That was the first snow this past season. There was 8" on that lot and it hadn't been touched yet. I was plowing in scoop mode because it was wet and heavy and there was too much to windrow ;)
