    We send out renewals in March/April, right after we analyze profit, then they dribble in through the year, up to our cut off date in Novemeber. We hand deliver and drop a customer appreciation gift, some get mailed as property might be local but the owner is in Florida or Cali. We start to really push snow sales in August, gennerally few new jobs signed before October, most in November. Last year we had a freaky little snow squal run through mid october, same day phone rang off the hook and renewals came over the fax all day..

    We're far enough into snow sales now that I see people are still reeling from last seasons heavy billingss, we ussually get snow totals in the 30" range, last year we had 56". Budgets were blown and people took longer than normal to pay, also people really shopping the price point more than in the past, a tough previous year and a tough economy are where the blame falls,I think.
