Snow plow driver makes plea for headlights

CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - Jacke Brook shovels the snow in her driveway to a song about being on the beach. While many of us may be dreaming of white sand, Rocky River is exactly where Brook wants to be.

"I love it. It's kind of just a running joke with my friends that I like to shovel, and I've actually gotten some text messages this morning that ‘this is like Christmas for you, isn't it?'" said Brook.

Not even a couple of miles down the road is someone else who is shoveling to his own beat.

"I've been doing it for the past 45 to 50 years. I'm starting to wind down a bit," said Paul Riemer of Bay Village.

Paul Reimer is 80 years young and ready for whatever mother nature has in store for us this time around.

"I have no trouble pushing it around except where you've driven over parts of the driveway. Then, it's a problem. Other than that, it's not a problem, but I hear we have a whole lot more coming," added Riemer.

Reimer's snow plow truck thankfully arrived not long after we saw him shoveling. The driver came with a message.

"If they would please put on their headlights. Without lights, we can't see - especially a white vehicle. That's very hard to see. Clean off the headlights. Clean off the tail lights," John Parkview of Parkview Landscaping.

It wasn't hard to see what Parkview was talking about.  Within minutes of our interview along Lake Road several cars were whizzing by without their lights on.

Parkview is prepared to be out in this for the next 36 hours.

"It takes us eight hours to do each customer once. So we'll be going around - if they are right about the weather, we'll be out about thirty-six," added Parkview.

Like everyone else, Parkview is hoping Mother Nature will throw them a bone, but so far, the snow just keeps coming down.
