    I think you are asking touch ups after the storm. At 2" you should be going out only once so you should be getting it all on the first to around. I will go back and open up the aprons for free if I'm driving by it

    With the way your pricing is it sounds like 40 for every 2" fallen. Go out half way through and then again at the end for a total of $80. You should set up pricing like 2-6,6-12,12+. Makes things easier
