Why can't spring get here any faster! The sun is shining but the temps are still in the 30's and talking about possible couple inches of snow. Great 3" inches all winter long and now a couple inches. Iowa gotta love it. What's the weather like where your at today?

It's killing me too. It looks nice outside, kind of like a warm spring day, but when you walk out the door.......brrrrrrr, its cold.

Its 22 degrees outside right now in Connecicut with 20mph winds. We had a snowstorm yesterday and probably another one on friday. I want spring too, here it was 60 degrees on Monday, and all the snow was nearly gone....ugh!

Hey Hardworking-havent heard from you in awhile, hows everything going, and hows the truck?

I am bored too, ready for spring. It is around 30 degrees here in central Illinois and windy. Can't wait to get mowing, but probably not until after the first of April.

About 70 and rain all day.

It's about 28 and windy here. I am about sick of the snow already.Nothing all winter, and then everything comes in the middle of Feb-March. It seems like every other day it gets warm enough to melt the snow off the lawns, and then we get 2-3" more every other day... :dizzy:

Well, I'm sitting in my office bored to death. Its nice a sunny out but only 28F outside. It is suposed to snow this weekend....are you kidding me. I can't wait until its time to start cutting again. I just love the smell of cut grass not to mention the statisfaction of having the nicest cut lawns in town.

There is nothing like powering through the tall stuff at 8-10 or even 12 MPH and leaving a beautiful cut. I have had people tell me I can't believe how fast you go. Sometimes they act like going fast cuts down on quality. I just ask if they have ever seen a nicer cut lawn and the answer is always no.

Isn't this job great...well it gets a little tiring late in the summer.

Only 28 here but the wind is crazy putting the temp down into single digets. More snow expected on Fri. This is not a bad thing for me due to plowing.

Spring showers are here. Made fertilizing a fun job today. Good thing I have that silly (or at least I used to think so) strech cover for my spreader.

I know I am complaining to guys in REALLY cold weather, But I can't wait for the balmy florida 90's.

Mudy and wet outside all day long. But i did mange to get 3 lawns in before it started.

I saw 6 different trucks pulling mowers around town...........junk pulling junk to nice pulling nice.....no names to id them, pulled up to a gas station in the car, saw some guys mowing the station, about 1/4 acre, I asked the cashier what they pay those guys to mow, she said $20.00??/Got a look at the mower, Craftsmen rider, trimmer was a Ryobi, or Homelite........Oh well....... :)

Just made a trip into town (I live on outskirts) and they are spraying the streets! For those down south that means spraying to prevent ice/snow buildup. Seen two trucks with plows on. Come on I just waxed the car on Sunday! Oh well, better get the plow hooked up. Hey better get it back from the body shop first.
