This snow today has all my fall clean ups in a up roar. I do not know what they want me to do about it, most of there leavs have not droped yet, If I go do it early they will be angry when I have to come back when the rest of there leaves drop. Hard to tell them it is still going to get warm. Oct 20 is to early for snow.

Looks like it should be in the 50's by the end of the week. We will get our usual indian summer. On my accounts, most of the maples and the oaks have not even turned yet. I am guessing another two weeks.

Its snowing here in Green Bay today the 21'st but I am not worried at all. Its a nice day to take a break and think how it will be in another month and a half.
Most of the trees are still real full and the real clean up wont start til next week. Gives me a little surfin time.

I wish you could send the snow down this way. Last year we only got one snowfall and it was huge. It was an entire ¼ of an inch. That's right ¼ inch. Gosh I miss the snow from my childhood.

I'm in the same boat. I've already had several customers call wondering when there leaves are going to get cleaned up. Well, thats a little difficult when there's 5 inches of snow covering them. Pray for some warm weather, and DRY weather. If only every fall was like the 2001 fall. That was perfect, so dry-for so long. The leaves just turned to dust with the mulch kit on. We didn't even get a good snow fall until Christmas. In my eyes, thats just fine. Less snow makes for better ice conditions for fishing too:D !

I did a clean up yesterday.

Long story short, most of the snow had already melted but I still had some on the ground in the shade. I used the blower to clean off the snow and dry out the yard. Worked great.

We're right on Lake Superior so the winter weather can be odd as the lake temperature has an effect on the shoreline. On one end of town, we had a couple of inches, than drive across the city and there's nothing.
