For some people, the first snowstorm of the year means snow days, hot chocolate and staying inside. But for Nick Borsellino, the white out conditions meant earning a little green on the side.
"It's kind of a funny story," Borsellino said. "My brother in law gave us his old snowblower. A friend of the family was complaining that she hated getting up early to shovel the driveway to get the 'plow hump' out of the way to leave for work. So I jokingly said I would trailer the snowblower to her house and do it for her."
But joke or not, she thought it was a great idea. Borsellino mentioned it to a few other people around town and on Facebook during the first storm of the winter - a storm that led to the first snow day of the year for Cazenovia schools on Dec. 8. He ended up with seven different driveways to snowblow.
"A few were one time deals, but I actually have four people who want me to do it during the heavy [storms] for the winter," he said.
Borsellino said that, unlike plows, he can handle smaller driveways and can clear around cars and walkways.
