Ya, but you guys don't have the luxury of experiencing the pain and suffering of a snow storm.

I'd rather work on and off every two weeks in the winter rather than spending 3 days strait awake pushing snow.

Oh that wasn't a complaint, but rather gratitude. I don't ever want to deal with snow and we never have to worry about droughts here.

12. How often per month obviously depends on temps. We had a warm winter this past winter so we were cutting every other week from nov-march. However, a couple of years ago we had a good amount of freezes so it was every 3-5 weeks depending on what part of Florida you were in. A normal winter down here has us cutting every other week. But in those weeks, annuals, mulch, palm pruning, and other extras are very prevalent so there is really always something to do down here.

Your lucky, here in PA we have 4 seasons. My first customer is scheduled Sunday... looks like a 6 month mowing season this year for us.

I want to move south!
