    I was out today and it was brutal. Especially where the plows had pushed the snow up in front of the drives; there it was like 2 foot of densly packed, super heavy stuff. Makes me wish I had a plow. Maybe next year. For now I just have some shuvels and a helper or two. ( and they don't do near the work I do). But anyway, it's a suck job to shuvel alone!
    I'm not sure if it's like 8 inch avg or more out there, but it's heavy as hell and takes me 2-3 times as long as the last snow we had of 4-5 inches. I was told some plowers charge about $100 for residentials for this storm. What should I charge. $25-30 just doesn't seem worth it. Maybe if I had a big blower or plow. But shuveling this heavy sh#t is brutal on the back! Would anyone say that $40-50 would be reasonable for a 2-car width, 30 ft drive and small walkway? And I was thinking of offering a bit of salting for $3 extra.
    What do u Vetrans think?
  2. You can't overcharge in Carmel, Geist, some areas just west of Speedway and others. If you even think you're too cheap....you are.
