    I fired up a backpack today and cleaned up my Mom's yard again. Some of the darn trees still have stuff hanging in there.

    It's My Fault

    I took the pump and lower half of the mount off my personal rig trying to help:) I'll wash and wax it this week, if that doesn't work I'll pull the race car out of the mothballs. Driving a car with racing slicks on the street should cause immediate snowfall during the winter months...

    Good Ideas

    I'm going to take the barbecue out and clean off the patio furniture...

    If I can get the wife to pack away her winter clothes and boots, that would guarantee some snow.

    I'm just worried, 1/2 of all season contracts are due January 20th, and with no snow, I wonder how many will pay.

    I know what you mean. Just as the money starts to come in from Dec billing there is nothing to look forward to. Do the snow dance:bluebounc :redbounce purplebou

    I was thinking the same thing today. I have one seasonal that paid 1/2 in November and the other 1/2 due February 1st. I've only been there three times so far.

    And that's the gamble that seasonal customers take. They made out last year, we plowed 25 events last year....

    Besides fellas, it's only January 9th! Things will get rockin' soon, I promise! :waving:

    Took the plow off the other day. Took the old car out yesterday and today after closing it up for the winter. It was 59 here today. Maybe if I put the boat back in the water it will snow?

    I am with GSE on this one. I have most of my people on contract and the balance on pay as you go with monthly billing. If I do not move my blade all month I still get to bill out about $3,500. Each time it snows that amount increases $650.00 by the pay as you go clients. Each time I go out it costs me $120.00 for the shoveller and $80.00 in fuel for a 6 to 7 hour 2 to 4 inch run thur the route.

    well since it hasnt snowed since i have bought my plow, maybe if i call and put insurance back on my street bike then it will snow some so it will give us all somthign to do.

    seeing how this going to the casino and bar everynight is eating away the funds rather fast.
