I feel the same way, but I am thankful for a great snow removal season.

It will come, don't you worry !!

Funny that you posted this in maint/reno. That will be an area of revenue for us this spring as there is so much damage out there.

I must agree It's been a very good year and now it's time to blow the cobwebs off the machines and get to cutting...

I will not be sick of it if it is a plowable event. I earn more money in snow removal than I do in the green industry...just that the snow is only around for 3-4 months (if I'm lucky).

The more you want it gone, The longer it will stay. This has been a good year for plowing. So i say let it snow. :)

I'm pretty much ready to begin mowing again...snow plowing $$$ is nice, but enough is enough already.

I'm sick of the work, but cashing the checks still feels good.

Be thankfull. We are looking a drought this year in the Northwest. Go figure, no rain in Seattle, no snow in the mountains which means no green on the ground. :dizzy:

Send some of that 22" here gopher. Same with the rest of you, we need all we can get. We have needed 150% of norm for the past 5 years to fill the lakes, creeks, reservoirs and have not gotten more than 100% yet. Right now we are at 68%. It is going to be a big fire season unless we have a summer like last year, rain nearly every night and temps only got to the upper 80s a couple times. I think our water table is only at about 50% now.

BMFD92, I notice you are from my neck of the woods. Worked in Croton and Bedford Hills for quite some time, originating from Beacon & Fishkill.

We had a somewhat normal year-lot of warmups,rain ,then cold snap to freeze up
the runoff.We are losing snow fast now,but the season I hate is here,mud and
potholes.Gotta wait until it dries out a bit before we can get to work.
