    60*+ today, took of the equipment, emptied the bed, put on the load handler and cleaned up the leaves. if there is one thing worse than a mid winter thaw is seeing the lawn covered in leaves that came down in an early snowstorm.

    The lawns are way too wet and soft here. It's not worth the rutting and grooving.

    Cleaned gutters today. Ground way too mushy to do leaves or even walk on in some yards.

    I took my plow off too. I barely got it off in December, but that's a good thing! January is starting to make me nervous. We still could use some more snow. I wouldn't do any leaf cleanups, my equipment is stored away at various places. Plus it's snowplowing season! It's supposed to get cold tonight and snow, but not enough to do anything about.

    Everything stays on. All company trucks so no daily drivers. There are even 6 that the plows never come off because they aren't used in the summer.
