Chris Kahl has been working hard.  The Baltimore man bought a snow blower last week knowing the blizzard could be a historic storm.

"Between the snow blower, and a couple other pieces of equipment, and salt, and everything like that, I’ve put out $1,000 to come out here and try to help people out, make a couple bucks,” Chris said.

And since Sunday morning, he's been digging folks out with the help of 14-year-old Vernon Forsyth.

"He runs the shovel and I run the snow blower."

They've cleared sidewalks, driveways, and porches.  Tuesday night they spent an hour getting the snow out of a parking spot on Westfield Avenue.

"I had a list of folks that needed to be helped, and just road around from address to address,” Chris said.

So far, the pair has hit about ten houses.  Chris says word of mouth, and offering his services on Facebook has kept him busy, as well as put some extra dough in his pockets.

"Back breaking work,” he said.  “It was 15-hours the first day and I’ve been going out a couple hours every night ever since."

If you want Chris's help, you can reach him at 443-326-3535.

Besides using snow blowers, other people are shoveling and plowing to make a few extra bucks after the snowstorm.
