Christmas Not So Bright for Plow Truck Drivers

Plow truck drivers sacrificed family time and woke up early Christmas morning to clear roadways and parking lots for holiday travelers.

Jerry Koble hit the road at 4 a.m. with hopes to complete his task of clearing 21 property parking lots in 12 hours.

Over the 15 years Koble has worked as a private property plow driver, he has had to make some major sacrifices especially when we have a white Christmas.

"I should be out in North Dakota right now," he says. "That's where my family is. You do what you have to do. Then you come back and do your stuff with the families."

Koble says he gives his employees the day off so they can spend time with their loved ones.

Koble says his approach to creating pathways is pretty simple.

"Our science is don't hit anything!"
