    Got a call from a guy today he asked if i wanted to plow/salt 4 houses. Start at 1 inch and all the way threw the storm at 65/hr plus the salt. They need to be done every inch. So when im done with the 4th one i go back to the 1st one.. Think this is a good deal??

    $65 an hour, think about how much you could plow in an hour. Personally I would pass on it but it depends on your situation. Every hour of plowing is hard on your truck/gas. If you need the work bad tell him like $70 and its a deal and then drop him after you find better paying work if your trucks still running.

    Yeah i dont have many accounts thats y i jumped on it. I did it last night and it wasnt bad. Than at the end of the storm i hit up all my accounts. It worked out well it wasnt bad beacuse we were keeping up with the storm we got about a foot.. I bought a new plow a few weeks ago and im glad i took this deal bc if i just did my 8 accounts i woulda been hurtin..
