"i'm sure we're all competitive on price. otherwise, it'd be hard to find guys. it's hard to find people to work late at night. a lot of guys just want to stay home and not do this. but there's a lot of guys that are like, let's go." kyle prahm is a subá contractor and is part of a crew plowing lots at mercy medical center north iowa. while they have other things to do... they enjoying making piles of wispyáwhite snow.
