    Okay they are saying some light snow on sunday but then a possible good storm which they are saying will start out as snow change to sleet rain back to snow i dont know if i should believe it or not. I havent been out plowing yet. All i have been doing is sanding. I hope I can make some extra money for the holidays. Im hurting for money. Let me know if anyone else is so I dont have to be the only one. If any guys are looking for a shoveler or driver in Southeastern CT get back to me and I am gladly interested.

    I haven't billed for any fall clean ups and October cuts either. I'm sure I'll be waiting until mid Jan. for payment? I feel your pain...These dam fall clean ups are killing me. I still have about 8 left and I don't foresee finishing them by Sunday. That's what spring clean up's are for! I heard a rumor around town that we should have a plowable event. I guess Saturday will be the day the leaf box comes off and the sanders go on. I'm still waiting for my new X-blade to come in...

    We should wrap up leaf and extra work saturday. I really do not perfer snow. 75% of my contracts are set , snow or no snow, so for this reason I really do not like snow. I have not taken a new job in years, just same old accounts and also been down sizing. If any of you guys are looking for snow work let me know. I refuse a lot of work and can set you up with a ton of work if you would like or just refer you. Though little to late this year, but some times jobs pop up now. I also, hear we will be getting alot of snow this year according to some news stations. Similiar to the 95 -96 year. I tell you that season was way to long and everyone just got tired of the word snow. I did not get many days off that season.

    Well it's comin down pretty good for us over here in Cleveland. Got about 1" so far and it started only about 2 hours ago. They're saying 6-10" by Saturday morning. Better say some prayers.

    Its looking good for this storm. All the news stations are saying snow. They are saying it will be a plowable one
     
  16. They even said here in NJ/NY it's going to be "plowable" for Sunday-Monday. First time I ever heard the weatherman use that term.

    actually theres nothin wrong with landscapers i was joking. yea you make it look nice and you put flowering plants next to a pool so they blow in and create a mess hahhaa. i was jsut surprised there isn't more pool guys as it also is a seasonal job
