MANCHESTER-by-the-SEA, Mass. (AP) â€” A Massachusetts man has found a way to profit from the several feet of snow in his yard: He's shipping it to people in warmer climates for the bargain price of $89 for six pounds.
Kyle Waring, of Manchester-by-the-Sea, got the idea while shoveling snow earlier this winter and launched ShipSnowYo.com.
At first he shipped 16.9-ounce snow-filled bottles for $19.99, but he found the snow melted by the time it arrived at its destination.

One of the major reasons for the drop is an 8 percent decline in federal money. The state received $321 million in federal road funding in 2010. By 2013, that number had fallen to $295 million.
The reduction mirrors a national trend in which decreasing federal dollars have stalled road upkeep across the country, according to a review of data from The Associated Press.
COEUR D'ALENE (AP) â€” Imagine a world where items normally made of metal are fashioned out of wood - airplane engines, Ferris wheels, logging chains, Geneva drive gear mechanisms, maritime pulleys, pendulum systems within grandfather clocks.
Throw in mischievous puzzles, functional and fashionable home decor and unique pieces of art and you would see a world created by Ray Gotz.
"I just like to make stuff," the 88-year-old Coeur d'Alene resident said.
