This is my first year plowing. I sub for a contractor 40 miles away. I live in a rural area that's in a snowbelt. While 40 miles away where I sub get's a lot less snow. This afternoon we got about an inch where I live, so I assumed that 40 miles away they probably just got flurries. Should have checked I guess. Stayed up late. Sure enough an hour after I go to bed, the phone rings. Contractor wants me to come down and plow. Fire up the truck, take the hour drive south. Plow for a few hours. Drive an hour back home. Really want to go to sleep. But have to get back in the truck and go to my day job in another hour. I'm exhausted. Don't know how you vet's do it. But so far I do love it.
