    This is bit of a hello/goodbye.

    I have been more on lawnsite exploring and posting there. A hello and farewell to the plowboys in the hopes you will join some of the warm weather threads on lawnsite. Our small 2 plow operation got through the winter, a little more worse for the wear than we would have hoped. A slew of weird breakdowns most often than not had us a little behind the ball. A rim collapsed on one of our trucks, never seen or heard of that in my life! Yet it was a productive season, learned a lot.

    Locqus launched "batch jobs" for plow routes about a week ago, so we will be touting that feature next year when the snow starts to fall. Our sponsorship ends on the 10th.

    Until then, Shamrock will mow and Locqus will keep you on track. Hope the season was equally productive and profitable for you all. We will renew our sponsorship on the "cold weather" site next year.

    Until next year, "keep your stick on the ice" (I love that line! Thanks Red) and plow like a Boss.

    You might get some more snow before you start mowing lawns.
