    Think it's shifted east. Nothing much for us. That was the last hurrah.

    We finally finished moving snow early this morning. Now everything needs a good bath. Not sure yet how we'll stay busy until the snow melts, going to take some time.

    I've been looking on craigslist at some machines trying to find something we can fix up, paint and sell, some guy in Mercer's selling an S175 and a 753. Might be worth checking out. I also may be looking for a buyer for my 873, there's a guy coming Monday to check it out who seems like he'll take it but if it falls through I'll let you know. Great machine, I just need a CTL more

    Washed my dump trucks this morning and threw a quick coat of wax on, filled up the cans and got them ready for the guys to roll out on cleanups in the morning.

    We are not even getting rain here, anyone else getting snow?

    Doing mulch and more cleanups next week.

    Wish we were doing the same, we're probably a good 2 weeks away with all the snow on the ground here.

    I'm washing everything I have right now. But there's still 10 inches of snow on the ground. And it might get cold again towards the end of the week.

    Couple weeks out on spring work here too, have maybe 2 days of odd jobs to keep busy until then but it's going to be a slow end of the month. See a couple chances at some salt runs later this week at least

    Are you still detailing on the side? If so maybe you want to do my truck late this week, I'll be down for a long weekend and your works better than my detail guy. Shoot me a text if you're interested, if not no worries.

    Have a few tons (maybe 5?) of salt on a site in Ocean County, anyone want it? We can load it.

    I'm still doing the same maybe 2 cars/trucks a month. My buddy's bringing one of his triaxle's over for me to do tomorrow, and Monday my new rolloff is coming in so I'll be busy with that getting the boxes and everything on it so it's ready to roll, but in between I can get it done for you no problem. I'll text you later on

    Starting spring work in April usually makes for a crazy crazy spring. Not looking forward to it.

    Glad I don't have to deal with the mad rush you landscape guys will be dealing with when this is all melted. Wednesday we're replacing a small window with a bay window, it's supposed to be around 33 degrees which is typical of my luck especially since we're inside today and tomorrow.

    5 cleanups in the books today. Real happy we're not getting pushed back like you guys up north with them, hate rushing to finish cleanups.

    Still a lot of snow on the ground here, doubt we'll get a single cleanup done in March this year. Might take a long weekend away this week since nothing else is going on

    It's melting, still got 6 inches in the back yard. Most should be gone by the weekend. Then we can put them away, again.

    Melting quick here too but the ground is super muddy and soft. Washed a truck,plow and salter today and put everything away again. Hopefully it's the last time, looking forward to putting the same truck in a parade this weekend.
