    if it is taking you 2 hrs, you need a snowblower, plow, just about anything!!!

    If there is enough snow to shovel, then there is enough snow to plow. Following that logic, since I don't shovel snow, I see a need for a plow. Remember, the faster you get done with one driveway, the faster you can move onto the next driveway....

    How else is he going to get the snow outta the cracks in the pavers? Table salt is expensive down there.

    All you really need to do is distract the owner for an hour or so and it will be melted by then anyway..... :D Remember, 1 or 2" of snow in SC and everything shuts down!!

    If I knew it would take 2Hrs. to shovel by hand, I would have charged $250.00. Forget the salt, pavers will melt off nice. payup
