Blizzard!!!!

ok, we are getting a case of whoopass by ol mother nature and here's my problem.

I live in a rural neighborhood of 16 homes which the wealthy from the city retreat. I have an ATV with a plow and normally plow everybody in the hood.

After several plows very few of them even have the courtesy of a thank you phone call, some answer with a 12 pack and there is an elderly couple that I will help anyway, but most donít really give a crap.

ALL of these people could likely pay cash for a sl500 at any point of time.

Should I plow the unthankful?

Also: during the summer months these people deal with 360 Modena hole shots out of the hood (the part with no homes of course but it's still LOUD!)

Edit: Please post why I should or should not.

Of course I would take care of the elderly couple, thatís automatic. I will continue to do the plowing because it is my nature to help out. Being the young one on the block has itís issues but I still believe that you create your own luck by doing good things to help otherís.

So the Ďhood gets plowed!


BTW riding around on my ATV is a riot anyway it's top-o-the-line and fully equipped

When I was a kid we used to compete for driveways to shovel!

My neighbor came over with his snowblower and took care of my driveway. I gave him some gasoline and offered my air compressor and air tools when he needs them, for his effort. He was having fun too since we only get a lot of snow avery 5 - 6 years.

Thanks for the input and the compliment! I must add that I agree, being the young guy with the toy's it's the right thing to do.

Here's a picture from my deck.


The railing's don't depict the snowfall because the wind has blown it off.

Man, they think you're hired by the association. I'd keep doing it if I could, but maybe step off your machine and introduce yourself. I shoveled my neighbour's sidewalk (she can't walk without a cane) for a year before she knew it was me.

This occured to me but they know it's me, I think that they think I am just having fun!

I had to move the trucks out of the driveway so they posed with my Quad.

The Tundra has a old Montana plate for vanity and the Avalanche does not have plates yet. In michigan you only need a rear plate to make room in the front for "Grass, Gas, or A$$ no exceptions" plates and "let me tell you about my grand children".

I must add that Chevy is sweet! Ride's wonderful and gets pretty good mileage. 22 hwy and 15 city.
