Idaho Teen Makes $35,000 Plowing Seattle Snow
Seattle recently got hit with a TON of snow! In fact, they had their snowiest February in over 70 years! So, you see, Seattle isn't too used to getting that much snowfall, so residents had a tough time shoveling and dealing with it until they got some much-needed help from an Idaho teenager.
According to CNN, 18-year-old David Holston (who is a landscaper and snow plower in Coeur d'Alene), made the trip to Seattle to visit his mom. Before he took off, his friend suggested he take his plow-truck and maybe make a little cash during his stay. Luckily, David listened and drove his truck there. Then set up a Craigslist ad offering his snow plowing services. IT. TOOK. OFF.
According to CNN, he started receiving calls immediately. Someone even offered him $1,000 for a job! During his four day stay, he cleared driveways and parking lots at $500-$700 an hour. Despite the rates, the calls kept coming and he managed to rake in over $35,000!!!!
