    9 years ago I went 5 days straight without sleep. On day 5 I tore the plow off my truck and ran it over. My ostensible partner took off for parts unknown with 50K of my money. On the way home I had checks flying out the window while smoking a cigarette and was too tired to get out and go get them. When I got home (2wd van) I got stuck 90 feet from my parking space. I left the vehicle where it sat, my dad came over and parked it for me, I was already in bed asleep. I got up out of that bed 30 days later, as I got the shingles. My van was gone (worth about 500 bucks) along with the tools inside it (worth about 25 thousand bucks) because my dad parked it illegally and the tow guys got it.
    You may or may not get rich in this business, but I know for a fact you will always have stories and memories. I'll be plowing tomorrow. How 'bout youpayup

    I have to get up and have the schools and businesses done way early, then on to the private residences. A ten or twelve hour plow day is fairly normal. I am paid by the hour, so I don't care. I look forward to it at first, but by the time it gets past New Years, I am about ready for spring. Our company does pest control and landscaping in the spring/summer/fall, and we earn our years earnings in that period, so I don't really NEED to earn money in the winter. Its nice to have the spare cash and I would go nuts without the plowing....

    Shoot, I get up have coffee and go looking for more to plow.
    I take a son with me and we cruse looking for shovelers. They usually flag you down to plow their drive. A quick $10 for 5 minutes work. Gas tanks are always full this time of year.
