    Anyone ever run into this? We had snow that turned to rain then everything froze that was Friday, today I get a bunch of calls (from non-customers) to break out the end of their driveways, just plowing the hard packed frozen snow. Took about 2 min each and got $40 cash! Got plenty of beer money for tonight :drinkup:

    That was great I hope I get more!

    That can be hard as hell on your plow and truck sometimes.
    The plow trips,returns upright, catches again, trips your -not fast enough on the brakes--> Dead Mailbox, watch out ditch.

    In large storms, I drive around big towns and people flag me down on the side of the road. They par me like $35 to push the end of the driveway. I almost make as much as I do with my clients! My one rule is that I do not take money from older people who whould not be shoveling in the first place. I can't see making an old lady pay for me to help her out!:angel:
