The 162nd Rule of Acquisition states that even in the worst of times someone turns a profit. Nothing could be more true about the hardworking private contractors whose primary business is to plow snow. While we whine about our commute and having to shovel our own driveway, this difficult time has profit being earned hand over fist.
Snow storms highlight entrepreneurship at its best. From the larger companies with dozens of plow trucks to the kid on the corner armed with his (or her) trusty shovel to clear his neighbors driveway. This is the American dream! Where some see adversity, others see opportunity. This is the attitude that keeps this country strong.
The economy is aided by the money spent by those snow plow employees. The kid on the corner might in fact be saving up for a new bike or the latest gaming console.
So while it took me over 2 hours to get to work this morning, I look out the window and see white gold.
There’s gold in those snow mounds!
