GREECE, N.Y. — Rochester is being hit with another a winter storm. This comes just a week after a foot of snow fell on the area.
We all know the snow can be a hassle, especially driving in it, but for people who make their living off this winter weather, they’re keeping busy.
Mike Callahan of Callahan’s Lawn Care says the last few weeks have been busy for him.His business has 23 crews that are clearing nearly 600 driveways. They start at midnight and are done by 7 a.m.
It’s a routine they plan to follow tonight with the snow that’s falling now and that’s expected to fall over the next couple days.
“For an overnight run we’ll probably dispatch between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m. Everything will be cleared out between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. at the latest. If there’s another 3 inches, we’ll cycle back and dispatch the trucks back out around 8 a.m. for a second run,” Callahan said. “Most people are worried about being cleared out by 7:30 a.m. in the morning and about 5 o’clock at night when they get back from work. With a storm like this you have to stay on top of it, and if it’s close to 3 inches we’ll make sure it’s taken care of.”
Callahan said one of the toughest challenges with working in this kind of weather is the driving conditions.
He says his drivers are out in the worst of the worst and they’re usually out before even the city plow trucks are in most cases. He is asking drivers to just keep an eye out for guys like him when they’re on the road.
Back here on Long Pond Road the snow continues to fall, so we should see that 3 inch mark tonight, meaning Callahan and his crews will be back at it again.
Callahan this is what they signed up for, and this is what you get when it’s winter in Western New York.
