With mostly mild conditions this winter, snow plow businesses have been taking big a hit when it comes to income. Both rain and snow totals are well below average in some parts of Indiana and it's not just this year. Meteorologists say overall snow fall has been declining over the past five years.
That's why some snow plow business say the cost of maintaining trucks and plows is outweighing the profits, "Five years ago we were busy three four times a month but the past five years it's definitely going down," said Redlawns Lawncare & Landscaping owner Joe Weaver.
Monday night's snow storm that hit Northern parts of the state, likely was a welcomed sight to those in the business of plowing it. Here in the tri-state we are expecting our first round of winter weather Wednesday. Several school districts called it a snow day Wednesday morning. More districts are starting to announce early dismissals. Be sure to download the 44Storm Team Weather app for the most up to date information.
