Y'all won't have the pleasure of my posts about how much I hate all illegal operators for a while. Oh, too bad!

Time to prep for snow route. I guess clean-ups will start in August. Oh well, at least snow money is bonus money.

It figures, I was planning on starting clean ups on Monday, now we could have white crap on the ground. We've been waiting all winter for this $hit to fall and now when we are all ready to go out and finally make some money and it snows. Oh well, guess I'll put the damn plows back on. :dizzy:

Don't get me wrong, 2 weeks ago I would say bring it on and the more the better, but now after having such a crappy money making winter, I am READY to go and make somepayup. Plus, things are already muddy enough!!

I was going to start a thread about this for the northeast guys.

WTF. I wanted to start my cleanups on the 26th and as of wednesday I was starting to doubt that date. Now there is no way I can get out in march at all. I just saw on NECN (new england cable news) that I'm in a potential 6-12 inch range. Thats an early storm total though. Even 4 inches is going to screw things up.

Think about all the other work, mulch, pruning, etc, that is just going to have to wait a little longer.
