Feb 22 storm

Well we got a pretty good dumping of snow on the 22nd of feb, i was out plowing for over 13 hours, got some sleep then back out again. Thought i'd share a few pics from one of my plow contracts. Tomorrow we are supposed get another 5-10 cm and friday another 10-15 cm. All money falling from the sky hehehehehe all the snow piles you see are just from this storm alone. Im running out of room to pile it

ya it is... this is just a side job for me so its pretty much extra "play money" Just from that 1 site i made just under a thousand bucks and only takes me a 1/4 tank to plow so im happy with it. The bigger the storm the better

so far in a just over a month i've made just over 4 grand... as for the whole winter i'll have to wait till the snow is totally over and all money is recieved. This is just a side job.... im a self employed general contractor and i also am the property manager of 72 town houses and i also do mechanics and body work.... i wanted to make automotive my career but after 8 years i gave it up.... its nice to make your own hrs but quite often its very long days and nights but when you get payed big money for a few hrs work it makes up for it. Just not good when the family is complaining your never home... but when you buy the wife things even when she dont ask for it makes it less stressfull lol The insurance for plowing is very expensive. But covers your ass. You have to have your regular everyday insurance and you also have to have a general liability insurance for your plow and and damages,
