A Shameless Plea for Help from Madison Friends

So, the semester is almost finished, and I'll be leaving Madison for a couple of weeks soon. So will my roommates. Because, you know, Christmas, etc.

But what is sad about this is that while we are gone, we have a driveway that needs to be shoveled, along with our sidewalks (we live on a corner). Because we have sidewalks, they need to be kept clear of snow, lest we receive a $100/day fine from the city. (If it stops snowing before midnight, sidewalks should be cleared before noon the next day. If snow continues to fall after midnight, then a household has until noon on the following day.)

My roommates and I are going to be 2 hours (or more) away from the house, and need someone to clear the snow for us. We have two shovels, a snow-blower, an ice pick, and a bag of sidewalk salt. You can park in our driveway (or garage) for the duration of this time. And we will pay you.

I'm only going to say yes if I (or one of the roommates) have met you before. (People I know from conventions: You are considered people I have "met" before.)

Leave a comment or email me for details.

This would be from Saturday, December 22 until Saturday, January 5.

(PS: What is an appropriate amount of money to pay someone for clearing snow?)

I could probably do it. Although I expect to commuting back and forth between Sheboygan and Madison throughout the break, so I won't be here in Madison every day.

Gordons: We need something more concrete than that, so we've worked out a different plan. Thank you for the offer, though!
