    It was fun while the snow lasted, but time to get the plow covered and get the mowers ready for an early spring ...
    Who's with me....?

    agreed. NWS is saying that by mid week all the snow will be melted off the lawns around me. Figure by april 1 we will be doing some clean ups. Still need a little time, working on getting my advertising plan all squared away right now.

    We've been knocking them down to get rid of them faster. We're also moving snow out of shaded areas and into places where the sun shines for most of the day. Otherwise we'd have places where we have to mow around a pile of snow. Lol

    Nothing worst then a fast start to spring. We get 2 days of warm weather and they want to know when your coming to cut the grass.Did I mention there's still 10 foot snow piles every where/

    It would be nice to clean and put things away but it is just to early.

    I'd love to pack everything away, but our contracts go until April 10th.

    I don't have any mowers to get out, but I will be calling the guy that mows my lawn in the summer!! :D

    I couldn't get any customers to pay for anything like that. Their budgets are already drained from the 45+ inches we got in Feb. I guess the snow piles will come in handy if it's hot, I can cool down and jump in it! :)

    They are caling for 40's & 50's here all week with rain. I bet by the end of the week we will have very little snow left, probably just the big piles. Then everything will be all nasty looking for awhile. But I will take it.
