PHOTO INDEX: OUR INTERVIEW LOGO.
This week we got up with a snow plow truck driver who made some big bucks on the side this week.
Q: How did you get started?
A: In 1978 there was a huge storm in January. Penn Dot put bids out for contractors and the money was good.
Q: Doing it ever since?
Q: Who do you work for now?
A: I gathered my own list of people.
Q: Okay, can you tell me what that list is?
A: Well I have two municipalities and about 18 businesses. The businesses are easy because they are just parking lots. But the towns are tough especially with little alleys.
Q: Best part of the job?
A: When I can go home.
Q: Worst part?
A: Besides the obvious like the damp and cold the worst part is when people don’t stay off the roads and let us do our jobs.
Q: Is winter your favorite time of year?
A: Hell no. I like the summer.
Q: But you can’t make extra money in the summer plowing. How's that make you feel?
A: I’ll get by. Believe me, I’l get by.
