    Just curious as to what some people do during the times that it isnt snowing.

    Do you have full time day jobs?

    I myself am an Information Technology Mannager for a software company.

    Luckily I work at a Chevy dealer. I don't start until mid am, which is nice, especially if it snows. I can get all my plowing done before work. Nice also because if my truck breaks down I can still take it to work with me.:) It'd be nice to say we've had snow, so I can do something in the morning besides drink coffee.:(

    No day job, just plowing. The way this winter is though, my wife is going to make me get a job. I can only use the excuse "I worked on the truck all day" for so long. The nice thing about plowing is it only has to snow 3+ times per month, and I can make a comfortable living. I have it set up so I have 10 % of clients as season contracts. That covers my base expenses when it doesn't snow much.

    I work full time for the TSA. Have to be at work at 5am or 7am depending on the shift. But I can get everything done in about 3 hrs.

    I actually deliver newspapers. It pays pretty good if I figure it out per hour for 40 hers a week but I only take 26 hours week. The bonus is that I am done in 4 hours and ready to go back to plowing.

    However, no snow this year at all, so I don't have to worry about getting done in time.....

    I manage the fellows at a warehouse unloading merchandise.
    Up until 4 years ago it was fulltime landscape / plow with 5 trucks.
    It has only snowed 1 good year in Columbus in the last 4 years.
    I think I might have jumped out of the fulltime plow at the right time.

    Nope, thats why i'm posting at 12:00 in the afternoon, I have a landscape business and i'm just sitting waiting for the snow. My dad builds houses so sometimes I go run a backhoe or work with the carpenters if I get motivated enough to do so. Acually sometime in the next few years i'm probly gonna start getting out of landscaping somewhat (not plowing though) and into busness with him.
