I really hate commercials because your either doing them on the weekends or late in the day to avoid cars in the parking lot.
i only have 3 but I do them at 6 a.m. if you've ever heard of Lawns By Hand, Mr. Hand gave me some great advice about 5-6 years ago, "The earlier you start work, the more grass you can cut, the more grass you cut, the more money you make."

I think I may try early in the morning. I would hate for her to show up and see it hasn't been done.

I wish we would get 24" of snow. That would be awesome. The whole state would shut down

Ahhh memories. I was a kid during the '93 blizzard. A week straight of fun in the snow and no school! My buddy's dad tied a jonboat to his ATV and pulled all the kids in the neighborhood around.

I was thinking the same thing, but the trees haven't shed a leave all year so we should have a good fall also.

Problem is nobody down here is equipped for snow removal duties, at least not many anyway, so we're just out of luck if a really big snow storm comes in.

Yelp, well it would be pointless for a state to invest in snow equipment/trucks and then have them sit there and rust from no use. Waste of tax payers dollars. If we ever got a big storm the state or county the storm hit in would have to call subs, I got a call a couple of years ago when we got an ice storm, because local businesses were needing landscape companies with bobcats to spread salt/I've melt and scrape parking lots. At the time I didn't have a machine so I couldn't help

I agree the dozen or so we do have sit and rust as it is LOL! I guess we could do what we do on installs and rent?
