    I have always done snow for money during the winter months for an income. But this winter Michigan has been hit really hard with the lack of snow, BIG TIME. Sure it gives me a lot more time to market for newer customers, (Proudly: already 7 new ones this week) but I need another way to make money during the winter months. Any suggestions????:confused:

    What about delivering heating oil? That's a winter seasonal business. My second cousin owns an oil business and the guys work 60 hours a week sometimes during the winter. You'll need a cdl and hazmat for the job.

    I sell firewood during the winter but you should have already cut and split the wood during the spring so that the wood could season. Home repair and remodeling are other sources of income that are popular on this site during the wintertime.

    We're located in Clare right now, kind of wondering whether or not I should just move the whole operation to Gaylord or better yet Whitefish Point, LOL
