“The business is great especially at this time of the season,” Perez said. “This is when you make the make the most money. Its great to have a big snowstorm on December 1st. I wasn’t expecting it and I still have 27 more customers to go.”

Perez said he’s plowed more than 30 homes and expects to have more calls Monday night.
