    Fourty residential accounts within one mile? You must live in a suburb. Anyway, sounds good. Have you figured out how long it will take and how you're going to get them all done if they want it done before leaving for work? And here I was feeling smug that after five years I've managed to get ten within a five mile radius.

    ive driven the route, it doesnt seem like it will take long im guessing it could take anywhere from 3-8hrs depending on the amount of snow fall and the conditions out on the roads, but i have a 24 hour window after the last snow fall and everyone that has signed up agreed with the terms. ill plow anything between 3"-10" that would be included with the season, and anything over ten inches will be considered an additional charge, i offered salt to the people and for those who excepted ill be billing them $10/spread. just really hoping for a good winter
