Small town plow operators getting big business thanks to snow

Linden Ream said Sunday his phone has been ringing basically non-stop for the last two days as snow piled up across the area.

He normally works as a farmer, but last year he bought a truck in hopes of earning some extra money in the winter by plowing snow. He said he had no idea he would be this busy.

Ream also brings someone with him to keep him company. Tuffy, his dog, rides passenger in his red truck as they plow driveways together.

Ream said the reaction he sees from customers is priceless.

"Oh they are very happy to see me," he said, chuckling. "They call me on the phone, and ask me how soon I can get there and of course I've had a long list for the last two days, but whenever I can make it there, they're always standing out there and kind of get a big smile on their face."
