My "off time" is scheduled as follows:
*The Tuesday before Thanksgiving through the Sunday after Thanksgiving
*Christmas Eve (YAAAY!) through the seventh day of January
*A week in February (varies)
*A week in March (varies and usually does not happen)
Being in Atlanta, we usually don't have snow. My winters are scheduled with hardscapes which affords me the opportunity to fit in vacations. Originally from Cleveland, OH, I empathize with LCOs who mow spring through fall AND plow snow all winter with no break in sight. The money may be good, but the toll it takes on you is brutal.
