Plow App Can Get A Snow Plow To Your House When You Need One

You've heard of the Uber or Lyft apps that let you request a ride to take you where you need to go, when you need to go?

Well now there's a similar app to get a snow plow to come to your house on the east coast. PlowMe lets you request one-time snow removal, or set up automatic service anytime it snows. The app has about 60 private plow drivers around Boston, New Hampshire, Denver and Chicago just waiting to get a request. Then they drive to your house, plow your driveway and shovel your walk if that's what you want, and move on to the next place.

Part of the appeal of this app is that it avoids price gouging on days of big storms by letting consumers specify how much they're willing to pay.

Here are the details.
