    figure out your times as to how long you will be there plowing. what does it cost to pick up a ton of salt and how much to haul it over and your time. What is your hourly rate on plowing ? How long do you think its going to take you by yourself or with help ? Can you do this by your self and get the rest of your accounts done in a resonable time ? Are you going to need a loader to move snow or help you when have over ten inches ?
    Get some basic things figured out and maybe we can be more help to you !
