Gearing Up for Snow

Winter white means seasonal green for those in the snow removal business and things have been lean so far this year.

At CM's Custom Lawn and Landscape, the accent is on snow this week.

CM’s Josh Searcy said, "The guys just finished pulling one of the last trucks out, getting it ready. They are just finishing fueling everything up out in the yard. We fuel on site."

As co-owner of CM, Josh said the plan for Tuesday is for 50 pieces of equipment and a crew of 90 to hit the streets but so far this year, it's been a slow season.

“We will be fine,” he said. “We don't plan on snow because it is so unpredictable, so we plan for the other 10 months out of the year that we can work. Snow is always great, It keeps the guys busy during the winter and brings some money in."

Across town at Pruitt Outdoor Power, President Larry Almgren said Monday morning was busy. Selling snow blowers is half the business there. The other half involves making repairs.

Almgren said, “People have trouble, that's what we do. We fix things. So we get them out of trouble and make some money along the way to keep our doors open and the lights paid."

If you’re making plans to battle the snow, make sure there’s fresh gas in the snow blower.
