If you're a snow plow driver in Central New York, you may be twiddling your thumbs right now. Certainly the snow will be piling up. Eventually. But this Christmas it's pretty green--at least in the Mohawk Valley.

However, if you're itching to get started, there IS at least one spot where your skills ARE in demand right now. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation is currently searching for qualified plow drivers for Winter Snow Removal. The going rate of pay is up to $95.10 an hour and includes hourly fuel rates. Plus, ten hours of pay are guaranteed every two weeks through March 15, even if there's no snow!

So, if you're looking for this kind of work, or know someone who is, the New Hampshire border is just about four hours away. The full job posting can be viewed here.
