We don't start take down for at least a week.
and then if he snow is as bad as it is now we may have to wait till Feb or March.

Its really not that bad back on Oct 31 I was doing the last of the fall Limes and then on Nov 3rd I was a ladder and running around roofs putting up lights.
we worked till Dec 12th. Didn't really get much snow till around Dec 1st.
and now we will start tear down which will take approx 1 week.weather pending.
as it looks right now we have about 2 feet of snow on the ground but they are calling for rain mid week so we will most likely hit the roofs right after the rain.
It can be a challenge but that is what makes it so much fun.
I think it would be rather boring not to have the risk of ice on the roof or snow under your ladder. High nor'easter blowing at your back Rain sleet hail they all add fun to the job. It must be boring having calm dry warm weather everyday way down south.:laugh:

Well we ar going to try and start take down Tomorrow.
BUT the weather man is calling for upto 15cm of snow tonight so I guess
it all depends on how much we get.
