Just curious what everyone will be doing regarding their scheduling for Monday the 4th of July? Are you working that day, or moving them?

I may bump them back to the Saturday before and take the long weekend, this way not interrupting their holiday or mine.

Your thoughts?

Monday is when I have all of my commercial accounts scheduled so I might just be able to keep it the same, If some of my 5 day rotations fall on the 4th I think I will actually do them on sunday possible, but for sure not on the fourth.

I will not work on July 4th. That day is for family and to honor the USA.....work will get done the Friday before.

Working. We get 20 weeks of vacation that we don't want every year, so we work all the holidays that fall on a weekday (all three of them) during the mowing season.

Later,

Taking off and will push everything back one day. Hoping to take a four day weekend and be done by Thursday the week before the 4th.

I'll be camped out at the motorcycle dirt drags on the creek Fourth of July weekend. Too drunk to fish, let alone run a mower.
All of my lawns will be looking good for the holiday weekend before I head up to the creek.

My guys like to work everyday and our routes are pretty long and tight. We will work and try to get done early as possible. If i had any residentials on Monday, I would not do them, but we do all comm one Mon.

its to far away to be thinking about. I still have to get caught up for jobs I already have scheduled, along with the lawn care.

going to work a full day sat instead of a half so customers can have nice yards for the 4th and I wont have to bust my rump to catch up. May flow over to having to do a few Sunday If I land 8 new bids I put in today but thats fine. Its light out til after 8pm.

It's on the Tn/Va border. The one with the removable teeth usually wins. But first, it's gotta be a tie. Sort of an unwritten rule. Come on gals, lets see it again! :drinkup:

4th will be a day off. EVerything gets pushed back. We will be working a 4 day week. But if mother nature doesn't give us some rain here and soon we might not be working at all. Been dry for over 10 days now. Lawns are starting to turn brown.
