We do snow. Margin to margin snow out ways grass mowing. But you need the equipment which some may not all have. Need good people. Can't enforce that enough. But here in Iowa I have done snow 4 times this year. Years past I would do 15-25snow events.

It wasn't a whole lot of fun but kept it hooked up to my Dakota luckily road crews were excellent and that was not a problem.

Missed this message somehow. I grossed about $7k for the storm. I have since learned that my pricing was on the low side. Most guys were charging $250 and up for residential drives...my highest was $200. But most of the guys had straight blades and it was a major struggle for them whereas I had an easier time with my V plow...not saying it wasn't a challenge at times.
