State Vs. Private Plowing

Trucks like this one, with plows like this one have been all across Central New York today clearing out peoples driveways.

Trucks like this one, with plows like this one have been all across Central New York today clearing out peoples driveways.

The biggest difference and most dangerous part of residential plowing compared to city and interstate plowing is dealing with traffic.

"You'll develop a nice neck muscle going left and right, looking for cars coming behind you all the time," said snow plow driver Art Risucci.

The other difference is the size of the truck, not salting from the back as he goes and the type of plow.

"You usually have an eight, eight and a half foot plow on the front of a pick-up truck and city trucks got double plows with a wing. They do a larger area,” said Risucci.

The type of plow is not the only difference between residential plows and city plows. Art's snow plow company is full service.

"I know if need something I can call him and he or his wife would get my medicine or something like that," said thirty year customer Margaret Morris.

He’s out at all hours chasing snow, which he said would be boring if it weren’t for a little company.

"I keep talking with her a little bit as we drive. She likes the scenery too," said Risucci.

And with the continued snowfall throughout the night Art said he's going to be out plowing driveways tonight and again tomorrow morning, but work is not the only thing that comes with this fluffy white stuff.

Our eyewitness news reporter Ana Rivera has the lighter side of the story.
