I live in Clarks Summit, and looking out my door, I am not going to ever be able to dig myself out.
Anybody up this way know how much it cost to have someone plow a short driveway like you see on every house in every suburban neighborhood? Any suggestions on who to call?

Any kids in your neighborhood you could offer some money to?

I wish. I bought a fixer-upper in a nice neighborhood. All of the kids around here don't seem too interested in that kind of work. Good kids, but not interested in shoveling for me.

They have no concept of what money is and what things cost. I can remember when I was kid we'd be out in force going door to door. You'd make $200 easy and that was back in the 80's...

Many of today's kids - if not most- are spoiled and lazy.

I'm soooo lucky. I heard someone out on my front steps - a young boy from the neighborhood, shoveling my walk and sweeping my steps...I offered him money and he said, "Oh, no, thanks. I'm a Boy Scout". I insisted he take the cash and eventually he gave in when I told him I wanted to make a donation to his troop.

To the OP: Maybe if you check the yellow pages - most landscape people offer plowing services. They're all probably really busy, but you may find a smaller guy willing to stop by later in the day.

Ha ha. We came up to our new home here and WOW!!!!! THe snow was up to the top of my leg. We dug out a place to stick the car and made a little pathway down to the house. I think were going to have to get a local guy or maybe invest in a snow blower. We didn't even attmept to try the driveway.
