    The houses we do are the ones centraly located around that dark spot (pond) and are the 15 double units, and i usually plow it for my uncle by myself or with younger family that works for free and i get paid 15 dollars an hour and it usually takes from 3-4 hours on average and was wondering if that sounds right or not.

    thanks for any responses

    $15/hr to plow? You are nuts! You are at least 4 times too low...seriously. You will not last long if that's all you're making. Good luck

    i figured that but since i am 15 almost 16, my uncle is still in charge and thinks that its "a good price" and i always try to tell who is it a good price for, us or them.

    any more?
