    I love winter in general, I love snow. I even love to watch it fall, play in it, shovel it, plow it, watch others do the same. But, most of all is to plow it.

    I love being out all night or early in the morning and the only people out on the roads are basically you and other people plowing.

    I like it. I try not to do anything that I don't like to. I like to run equipment, trucks, mowers, snowblowers, skids......anything with wheels. It makes it soooooooo much easier to get up at 1am when you enjoy it a little.

    I like it, its a different type of work than I do so it breaks up grind from my day job and somewhat keeps me sane instead of burning out doing a ton of ot.

    I love it, it kills me that this year I wont be able to do as much plowing as I have the last 2 years.

    I love plowing. It's fun for some reason. Probably because there aren't many people out while your doing it. Probably my favorite thing to do.
     
  12. its great, no one else around(cept other plows), makes me a income (try that on a snowmobile) and pretty easy to see what you have accomplished in a night if its not snowing to much still, black pavement beside a foot of snow looks good to me. Plus about 3 times a winter (during a large storm) I usually come across a senior trying to shovel a drive(stuck vehicle, broken blower, etc) and for the 5-10 minutes it takes to help them out(nothing fancy verbal conformation its alright to do and just a quick up down pass so you dont "find " anything) it makes you feel good and in the generally small community I live in can't hurt your reputation
     
  13. PS forgot to mention how geniuely grateful those people usually are for whats really a small thing on our part helps you forget that one customer thats never 100% happy no matter what effort you put in

    I enjoy it. I like being out at night when there is no one on the roads, listening to music and having fun plowing.
