Snow Removal Businesses Hope to Cash In On Snowy Weather

The City of Omaha and some local businesses have been prepping for Saturday's snowfall.

For some people, snow-covered roads are a big inconvenience.

For some snow removal business owners though, it's an event they count on to make a living.

Snow on the way means Nick Corbin, of Nick's Law Care Inc., has been making last minute tweaks to equipment.

He's wanted to be ready when that slippery white powder arrives.

"I'm excited. Yeah, I'm ready to go make some money. This is primarily our income from the wintertime," he says.

When it comes to snow removal, that means it's not just hooking up the plows, but making sure salt trucks are full, and that snow blowers, and even shovels are ready to go.

Lately, there hasn't been much to do though.

The business has been ready all winter, but has only had to clean up the snow a couple of times.

"It's tough on my guys, I know that. You have a lot of full time guys, and I get a lot of temporary guys that come in and help, and they depend on it for extra money, and play money, and living money," says Corbin.

In the meantime, they're just making sure the equipment is ready to hit the pavement when the time comes.

"Trucks are ready to go; fueled up full, and everybody's kind of on standby," Corbin says.

We placed several calls in to the City of Omaha to see what its battle plans were for Saturday night, but no one ever returned the calls.
