    Figured I'd do the honor since some of my first snow contracts went out last week.

    Hows everyones year been?

    We've been here, waiting for el Nino to arrive, wondering if the big fat as$ Will find his way back home from his aspirations of immortality in American history. Too bad for him, you know, being trumped by the loon.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one thinking snow already, this week I plan on getting my snow contracts all sent out now that things are finally starting to settle down. Seems like people are finally starting to spend money again, been so busy with pavers & installs that we've hardly had time to do any trimming jobs over the past couple months. Hopefully everyone else is keeping just as busy

    This "tropical storm" that is supposed to be coming should be interesting.

    So is this hurricane mess going to help snow season, bringing colder waters in?

    Thats not how it works.

    Kind of hoping the brunt misses us but also hoping for some good rain. Heard the Euro is taking it OTS alittle more.

    Spent the night getting ready with the fire department and starting to get my house in order, trending off the coast but after Sandy can't be too careful down here. Wouldn't mind some rain and enough wind for some tree cleanups though


    They're not interconnected that closely

    Hahaha itll snow for sure! Best of luck.

    Snow after christmas would be ideal so we can finish cleanups without hassle. The leaves have really begun to start changing here in Ringwood, the sooner they come down the better.
