    What do you guys say the appropriate amount of time should be between the end of the storm untill the drive is cleared? We got about three inches tonight already and will be getting another two over night. I am still in high school and if they dont close school it will be around 6:30P.M. before I can get started on the route. I can get some of them done in the morning before school but not all of them because it is not supposed to stop untill 8am??

    If your customers know youre going to school during the day, why worry about it, Clear the priority ones first. If they cant drive through 4 inches of snow then they are pretty pathetic drivers.

    how long does your route usually take. Get up at whatever time you know you can have them all done till the time you have to go to school, get them done. So what if it's suppose to stop at 8am, it won't snow that much

    At the very least, go out tonight a punch some holes out. Then go clean up after school. I don't know how many driveways you have, but it never hurts to call and let them know what's going on. After a while you'll figure out their schedules, and they'll know what to expect from you.
