    I've been checking the weather pretty obsessively over the last couple of days about this tropical storm riding up the coast our way and it reminded me constantly checking snow updates all winter long. What's everyone's thoughts? Also keep your fingers crossed for those of us down here on the shoreline. Looks like it might get ugly

    I live on the islands so I'm waiting to see how it goes. Last I saw rain 50-60mph winds and a lot of coastal flooding

    Time to pull the plow out this weekend and start getting ready, the trucks have been completely covered in frost the last few mornings. Almost that time

    Same. Sprinkler systems are blown out, and everything is dead. Like drought brown dead. Have had a few customers call and ask if I burnt their lawns with last fert app even. Not much mowing this week.

    What a year its been. Cleanups have been going smooth, knock on wood were getting alot done.

    Not even close to being ready for snow. Have to set up a new truck with a plow frame and wiring, have to change another one over to be able to run a straight blade and the wiring harness fried on my '12 Ram. oh yea, been one hell of a month. But i have some pallets of salt paid for and most of my contracts are in ,hoping for a good winter.

    Rained like a ba@#$&d here, unfortunately the roof decided to leak. Monday had no power for 4 hrs. Not my best productive week.
