Middlesex County man cashes in on blizzard

Posted: Updated:

One Middlesex County man is cashing in on Sunday?s snowstorm.

Landscaper Greg Aquila has a fleet of six snowplows, and thanks to the blizzard, they are all busy clearing snow from more than 20 commercial lots in Middlesex County. Aquila charges $75 dollars per inch of snowfall and one good-sized lot can earn Aquila up to $8,000.

He says the work has not been easy. His drivers have been plowing since 2:30 a.m., and with this much snow they can expect to continue plowing for a few days. But Aquila says he is not complaining. When he sees snow, he says he thinks green.
