Way back in the day, my brother and I went door to door shoveling neighbor’s driveways for $10 bucks to save up for our first NES game (Metal Gear). In my opinion, shoveling show is a dope winter hustle because as much as we love playing in the snow, NO ONE wants to actually shovel that heavy crap off their driveway and they will gladly throw money at the situation…We actually bought two games…and some french fries
Fast forward to 2014 – I’ve moved down south (Ha!), so I no longer have to deal with punishing winter snow storms. Even if we did get a crazy snow storm down in the “A” I’m too old to be messing with snow.
If I were back up north facing yet another snow storm hitting most of the country as I type this post, instead of throwing on my “long johns” under my clothes and wearing double tube socks, I’d probably pull out my smartphone and use the Plowz app that can locate, schedule and pay a local plowman to come and clear up my driveway while I stay in the house and eat some of Mrs. Tech’s BOMB-ASS chili.
For my peeps in the path of this latest winter blast who are not looking forward to moving heavy snow around after it’s over, Plowz is an iPhone and Android app that will help you contract a snow plow driver to clear your driveway.
According to the Plowz site, tapping the “Schedule a Plow” button after you’ve described your driveway, entered your location and preferred time, and approved a price, a snow plow driver will come your way to start shoveling snow. Once the job is complete, the app will bill your credit card without worrying about invoices and tips…I would suggest you tip them a couple bucks anyway if allowed…IT’S COLD OUT THERE!
With Plowz, you can even send a snow plow driver to another home as a gift or to look out for an elderly neighbor. The assigned plower will send you a pick of their work to ensure the job is done right. I can imagine some richers on vacation someplace nice using Plowz to have their driveway plowed so they can return to a clear parking spot for their car #Hate.
Be sure to check the Plowz website to see if there are any available snow plows in your area….If not, be sure to stay [the opposite of] frosty.read more
