So. Much. Rain!

How do all you guys deal with rain completely destroying your schedule? We have SO MUCH work to do and it's going to be July before we finish our SPRING cleanups! Feels like we're doing something wrong or the hard way, but we're not sure what to change. We're not new to the business, but we feel like we're drowning this year. Constructive suggestions? Thanks!

Maybe sub out some of the spring cleanups if people are getting upset? Hire on an extra 2 guys to just do the spring cleanups with the understanding that it's just going to be a 1 month job for them?

Well, that stinks. Work on Sundays? That's kind of tacky, though.

Do you have people complaining or calling you? What are you telling them?
