How many of us went to work Monday morning with a smile?  We found a man who saw the forecast, and couldn't have been happier.

Carlos Smith says the more the merrier.

"Let it snow," said Smith.

Snow equals opportunity, and mother nature turned West 6th St into the land of opportunity.

He was the only one outside, a shoveling monopoly.

Some people paid him.

"Been there before when I'm down on my luck so I'm happy to help where I can," said neighbor Andrew Kent.

And for the others, Carlos still shoveled.

"You give a blessing, you get a blessing.  That's what I do.  Give back to the community," said Smith.

He may be the only man not worried about when the snow plow would come.

"More for me," said Smith.

He woke up at 6:30 AM to support his two boys: financially and as a role-model.

"Make the world a better place.  I wish there were more people like me in the world," said Smith.

What a wonderful story. Would love to hear more about this man...maybe even be able to send an anonymous donation somewhere for his family?
