Midwesterners take NY weather in stride while New Yorkers are closing schools. Shep tells about a bad snowstorm when he was a kid. He and Schwartz decided to make some money after a big storm. They spent hours shoveling out Mr Scott's driveway and only cleared a few feet. They snuck away before they were done. Shep gets home and the phone rings.
