Snow and more snow....

Posted 02-18-2008 at 12:57 PM by fiveoboy01

Well I'll tell ya it's been a bitch of a year for snow removal contractors around here.

We're well over 80 inches total snowfall since December 1st 2007. The record(like 76 inches) was broken last week. We've had one single snowfall of 13.4 inches. This weekend we were supposed to get around 12 inches again but we got more like 2-3 inches of rain/slop followed by about 4 or 5 inches of actual snow, followed by a "surprise" 2 inches early this morning.

Blessing and a curse I guess. My back hurts, my truck is taking a beating, and we're sucking down gas like no tomorrow. But the $ is good. I'm regretting that I didn't go after more snow accounts before this winter. Currently we service around 23-25 residential accounts and one condominium complex.

I really wish we had a skidsteer, then I'd just subcontract to one of the large compaines in town. My friend does this and he's made upwards of 30K this season so far

A skidsteer and a second plow for the other F-250 are slated for purchase before next winter. Knowing my luck, it won't snow nearly as much next season but there's too much $ to be lost to take that chance.

But I digress, it's been a good year so far. Things are looking up even for the warm season coming up... Quite a few things in the works. For the start of our 3rd spring in business, I feel that our goals have been met(exceeded). Can't say I'm going to complain
