Yea, nice weather like today really makes you want to get out and get going. Watch, next week it will probably be cold again and who knows the way the weather has been we will get the biggest snow fall of the season.

I think people jumped the gun on spring cleanups around here. We have a winter storm watch and the chance for some heavy snow fri and sat. Plows are going back on today :dizzy:

no doubt..they say we're getting 6+ inches into saturday am...the guys that cleaned parking lots jumped the gun & will have to re-clean those lots & proble only get paid once by the owners.....march is the most screwed up month...thats why I dont start up until the last week in march or april 1st. To me ....its not worth the aggrivation to start earlier.

Looks just like the Valentines Day Storm here, heavy sleet w/ snow, freezing rain mixed in. Hope it doesnt flash freeze like that storm tonight.

march is ALWAYS a screwed up month.....thats why I never plan on working in march....some guys were doing cleanups the other day...now all this ice/wind & snow made a total mess again...sticks & branches everywhere & sand on the front of the lawns from the sanders & plows....April 1st is when I'll start.

I don't think we'll be out till April now. Thats fine, have plenty to do at the shop. I was laughing all night as we were spreading the cr@p out of lots that I know got cleanups already. Like it was said, think alot of guys had a bad winter and jumped the gun way to early. We started construction 2 weeks ago and we have a hold on that for now, but lawns wouln't be going till at least the end of the month. Can only play what your dealt! :)
