Ray Williamson, dressed for below freezing temperatures with his fury parka, has been selling firewood at the intersection of Wells Branch Parkway and I-35 north in Pflugerville, TX. for 14 years. “Business has been good today, even though it’s cold.” Williamson owns Ray Williamson Tree Service and sells firewood on the side through the winter. Notice the roll of twenty dollar bills in his holding.
