    Got about four inches in some parts of the area. Rather early for Ohio. Wondering what some of you guys think about still advertising. Is it worth it with the early winter scare? Do you think everyone got there snow plow contracts out of the way today because if the surprise snow? If any body has any advise that would be great. I only have a few driveways that have signed so far but not enough to warrant leaving my day job for them. I know I'm late with advertising to begin with but should I just call it quits and hand the few drives I have off to someone else before I loose money through out the season?

    We advertise year round. Still plenty of time to pick up driveways, commercial work will be hard to find.
