    I had bout 35 leave removal accounts(bout $5500.00 worth of work)there has been snow covering them since November.:( Strange year up here in the Northeast. Leaves decided they wanted to hang around till it snowed...The snow actually knocked em off..So I bought a second truck, put a plow on it, and away I went. No snow in the near future, an I am bout ready to take the hair dryer to these accounts...Beans an toast is gettin old! Need another storm, or a thaw!! Wait am I in the right forum??;) :drinkup:

    I'm in the same situation. Not sure if I should be wishing for snow or warm weather at this point. But at least I have some work lined up for the spring already....

    Bring on Spring

    We have obviously done more plowing this year than last and we ran one less truck. Spring warm up would be very welcomed here!!!!! This time of year is nice to review the numbers, adjust where needed, clean and organize shop, trailer, etc. Nothing beats working nice spring days 6-7 days a week. About the same money as one storm but at least you KNOW that next week is coming and you have another full week of pay. The only thing I dislike about spring is April 15th!!!!!!!! Ryan

    I actually got to dig ditches the last three days in a row! Before that I don't think I'd actually put two days of dirt work back to back in the last six weeks... (Well, Wednesday I was actually re-digging the ditch I dug a week ago which filled up with mud and water because of all the snow, but that's ok too. ) :)

    Just plow the lawn. The leaves will stick to the snow and end up in a pile. When the snow melts in the spring, just pick up the pile.

    Actually there's on commercial account we plow that seems like they never bother to have thier leaves cleaned up at all. Every year on my first visit, whether it's to plow or just salt, I drop the blade and make a pass along the curb at the back of the lot. There's always about half a pickup load of soggy leaves that I just push off into the weeds. I stack snow in that corner so they'd end up there after a plow or two anyway.
