    i was wondering what you guys in the same boat as me do...i go to school 7 20 to 2 15 when i get home from school most peoples drives and sidewalks are cleared so i cant really drive around and ask people. and when i get people that want me to do it for them...there not going to be happy if its not done till 2 or 3 in the afternoon. How early can i start up my snowblower without makin people mad. Also i was wondering how you handle it if you shovel and then it snows the same day again....charge them again...just do it again b/c i did it to early?

    When I was your age. I got up at 2 am, started at 2:30 plowed till 6:30, came home, showered, then caught the bus at 7:05. Got home and started again. So my customers could get out of their house for work and back in when they came home. Then I went back to clean up after that or if we got out of school or a delay. Again I was using a garden tractor then a Compact tractor with no cab. I didn't get my first plow truck till I was in college. But seems to always run someone elses equipment after I got my own stuff done.
