Just a little Winter Bump it up.

Getting sick of Snow removal. We had one of our snowiest December on record.

It's a love-hate relationship. I only do it because I made the decision to be a scaper in the summer and I need to make sure I keep money coming in during the winter.

I'm itching to get out and do my early spring cleanup stuff. Only 10 more weeks!

Is'nt it strange how things go, this is the first season I offered my clients snow clearing, I don't expect to make bank on it (and I am not). We have only had one snow fall that warranted me going out and working so far. I know that future winters we will be the ones asking for a little mercy, But it has been kind of nice working on my place and the Jeep Cherokee (our father son project, his future vehicle) It is calling for a 30% chance of snow Sunday so we will see.

Ha! Previous to the last 2 snow seasons I would have been in the same boat. I'm itching to get a break and get stuff done. Another 2-4 inches is in the forecast and more chances in the next 15 days.

I hear ya, I'm definitively crying mercy. I think the odd sleep schedule is what is getting me the most. Even when I feel caught up and normal in the head again, we get dumped on.

Record snow fall

You know we are lucky the weather fronts that roll up from the coast are cutting across our rocky mountains and the snow pack for the ski industry is phenomenal. Where as it is not making it over those mountains into our Denver metro area. At least not to much yet. We have only had two snow that have had measurable snow this winter down here. I got to admit the past two days have kick me rear. I can't imagine what you feel like.

We average around 23 inches of snow a year and right now we are at 26 with at least a good 8-10 weeks of winter left.

Tonight we are looking at another 3-6. I think the record is around 45 or more and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we hit that mark.

Denver usually gets dumped on. I have a customer that just came back from CO where he spends time with his daughter over the holidays. He always snow shoes up there and he had to go to some crazy elevations in order to actually do it this year.

Sometimes we do get dumped on but for the most part we don't. Now I've done it Next week we will probably get 2-1/2 feet. , but seriously I can remember only 8 times in 40 years that we have had those kind of storms . Grant it there was on season about three or four years ago we had about 5 big storms hit Denver, three of them a week apart (consecutively). Then the fallowing year every Joe in town went out and bought equipment to take care of those type of storms and the next 2 season were as dry as can be.
