Yes, it has been rather cold and in fact they are calling for quite a bit of snow for tomorrow. So I know that is why I haven't been getting any calls right now. I am more concerned with my bidding system.

I generally bid residential yard at a rate of $50 per acre (about a $1.15 per 1,000 S.F.). Most residentials I bid around $35 - $50 per acre. Is this a good way to bid? I know a lot of people talk about knowing your expenses and I'm not sure how to figure tht but I do know that the last two years I have averaged around 9% profit margin. Is 9% good for this industry?
