    I'll bet nothing's going to happen, yet. We'll be ready, though. For the most part that is.

    Your lucky. I have a feeling that a bunch of people are going to be pissed when the leaves that are left get burried under snow!

    Eh.... just make sure they know they'll be the first ones to get done in the spring.

    Here in MN tonight, we're supposed to get 2-4", with rain all day today....

    It's a wait and see game again.

    I dont think anything will stick for too long. The ground is too warm yet. I still have a bunch of fall clean ups and some minor plow prep work, but Im ready to go for the most part.

    I think whats really funny is that I am still getting 3,4 calls a day for commercial plowing bids, come on people, its the middle of November and their still collecting bids yet.

    Brian, Im getting calls like this about everyday. They wanted the bids right away, but it will still be a week or two before they know. It seems as soon as they start talking snow in the forcast, people finally start thinking about plowing. Unless its near the areas I plow, I wont even look at it, unless its worth it.
