WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. --- At Mozelle's Southern Bistro, Friday nights are normally the hottest night of the week during the slowest night of the year. Unfortunately, all the salt in the world can't stop the wintry weather from slowing down business.
However, for landscaping companies like Yards by Us in Winston-Salem, the ice is a welcome sight. The company has more than 400 business and apartment buildings that depend on their snow and ice clearing services.
"When we get snow and ice event, it produces a lot of work for us in a short amount of time, but also a lot of revenue to help carry us for a few weeks during a slow time," said Andreas Dambakakis of Yards by Us.
