Lycoming County- Rough weather in Montoursville is putting a landscaping crew to work, not planting trees but plowing out parking lots for money.
"It actually helps because most of the time we are laid off during the winter. So when we get snow it definitely helps the family, with Christmas right around the corner." said Steve Hagan of Middlesburg
"I mean it is pretty good money. We work, depending on how much snow we get it could be a bonus. It's extra money for the holidays. I am sure these guys are not complaining." added Joe Eckert of Williamsport
As the snow piles up, so do the long hours behind the wheel.
"We're probably not going to see our families until sometime tomorrow afternoon, maybe evening. So we are going to be out here all night and tomorrow depending on how the storm pans out." noted Hagan
Down the street at DeSanto's Subs, owner Charlie DeSanto is also on the job. He says a little snow won't close him down.
"The stores are still filled up. I've had some real good days on days like this. You have to have your door open to try and make any money. If your door is closed, you cannot make anything."
And anyone out shoveling on a day like this is doing it not just for themselves, or their neighbors. They are doing it for the safety of anyone who has to work in the snow."
"We do ours, the neighbor, about seven houses down my parents live we go down and do that so it keeps us busy." Said Jeff Anthony of Montoursville
Keeping busy for thankful letter carriers like Susan Benjamin. She's working today too, a job made easier if the path is clear.
"Well, it's my job. I love what I do. Rain, sleet, snow, whatever I am out here doing it just for the customers." Letter carrier Susan Benjamin says the work doesn't stop today. She says some postal workers will have to go out again tomorrow to deliver packages because of how busy the holiday season is.
