    im sure you would. but that sleet sucked. I have a driveway that is a hill that is on a side of a hill. and wow. it started to slip and I thought I was a goner.

    I'm sure that's a lot of work to clean it all up. But wait till the sun comes out it will be absolutly beautiful.

    I actually have to go work for a friend of mine that has a tree service business tomorrow. He said that he has got alot of calls too.
    His company is Troy's Tree Service & Property Maintenance.
    On my way over Stafford Hill I saw somebody getting a tree cut down in there yard. A 70' or so black birch I think. I would of got a picture but the owner was watching me drive by, and I dint want to look to noisy.
