TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – All that white on the ground means green to some people who went to work when the snow fell. Some on a large scale, others with smaller operations.
This week there has been no shortage of snow to plow or shovel and the entrepreneurs in this community got to work.
Dominic Kline was digging job number five when we found him. It’s a day off from school but a full day of work.
“My arms hurt sometimes,” said Kline.
Aside from the pain, he digs himself in to make some money. Something he’s done several times now.
“I found a shovel on the side of the road and decided to find a place to shovel over the winter so I could make some money and help people,” Kline said.
Justyce Luna and Bomyea’s grass and snow removal teams held on to the truck to remove snow from a shopping mall parking lot on Monroe Street. They weren’t sure we’d get the big storm, but we got one for the record books.
“Oh yeah, it always feels good to make money,” Luna said.
The same plan for Randy Burns and his team that has been unavailable since Monday night.
“It’s a bit too busy,” said Burns.
There was a lot to do with Burns and his team working on several large properties across the region.
“It’s too much. I don’t know how much we got, but there’s about a foot in the parking lots,” said Burns.
Tyasia Allen did some of her best work on the sidewalk outside her Toledo home and found the fun in it.
“It’s like a little family bond,” said Allen.
But did it make her some money from mom?
“I’ll give her about $ 10. We’re just having a little fun, ”said Latoya Crittenden, Allen’s mother.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t just about the money. Davonta McQuin did it for free, digging through the snowpack for a very simple reason.
“Because I thought it was fun. I just wanted to shovel, ”said McQuin.
