    Redden; Great pics. My wife always wanted a salt water aquarium. Much more color & variety than her fresh water tanks.

    Winter's a good time to pursue our passions.

    I have a ski resort close by so work there in winter, I also officiate high school sports in the winter ( wrestling) which does pretty good on weekends.

    Alot of places hire temps for Xmas ,

    I do about 5 driveways with a blower to, ( I did the plowing thing but hated it) I like the blower way better

    I teach a couple classes at the gym to

    I don't make a lot of money at any of these but together it's not bad, also it keeps me busy and there things I enjoy doing

    Outside of running the skid for my dad when we have big snows and running the bush hog for a local farmer, I plan on selling christmas trees this winter and that should be a great part time job considering the location. There are alot of thing you can do to make money in the winter. I also plan on getting my CDL licence this winter. CDL's are very valuable.

    I'm really curious why you like snow blowing better than plowing with a truck.

    I do residential driveway and sidewalk snow relocation with blowers myself. This year I need to hit it hard.

    Not much love over on plowsite for those who run blowers only. :rolleyes:

    Any input appreciated.
