I have a friend who bought a snow blower about a month ago.  When he told us about it at lunch, I rolled my eyes (inwardly of course) because we rarely get enough snow to worry about. 

The joke was on us as about two weeks after that, the snowpacolypse hit us.  So he was chuckling to himself the entire time he was clearing his driveway.  He had to do it twice and then when more snow fell the following week, he had to do it again – and again was smiling to himself about how psychic he had been.

He went a bit further and took it to his favorite restaurant for lunch and offered to let them borrow it to clear their parking lot while he at lunch.  They were so grateful that they comped his lunch.  For that time and about 10 times after that!  There’s an entrepreneur for you.
