    about 4-5 times higer than here. sounds good, your bussiness should do well if you can hook-line-sinker it. you should be able to make $800-$1000 per hour.

    I can understand why you would raise your plowing price because there is more snow but why would the cost of salting go up?

    I'm in Chicago and I'll tell you that's way high. Try cutting those rates in half. You'll scare customers off real fast with those rates.
