EASTLAKE--When winter weather hits it's tempting to stay inside, but we know  that's not a luxury for all of us.

Snow plow drivers, for example, are unlikely to see down time when work needs to be done.

"It's just never ending, you know," said Harrison Reynolds, who was plowing snow Sunday night.

Plow after plow could be seen in places like Eastlake in the afternoon, as Northeast Ohio experienced another round of winter weather.

Those in the business of snow removal are keeping roads and driveways clear.

"I've got to really push the snow into the yard just to put snow plus
also for the homeowner to be able to see getting in and out of their driveway," said Brian Sandberg, who plows snow as a side business.

Sandberg tells Fox 8 it's important to stay creative because there are only so many places to pile the snow.

Some crews explain they drop the snow off into nearby ponds, so it will eventually melt into the water source.

"I started plowing about two o'clock this afternoon, I'll probably be out, til two o'clock tomorrow morning," said Sandberg.

He says the work makes for a nice pay day, but can't help thinking about the warmer weather on the horizon.

"I'm done, I'm ready for the warm weather, I'm ready to get the boat in the water and go fishing, and go to the beach with my kids."
