Calls are trickling in, but nothing significant yet. I have a feeling that will end by next week though. We've been out doing H&G Show estimates all week.

I got my first spring clean-up job today!!! I took Walkers advice and talked to my customer about how the tree comp. did him wrongby not cleaning up and he agreed to a spring clean-up. He also stated that the tree comp. left all of the trees and big limbs in his back yard after the cut them up and wants me to quote hauling it all off for him. It is about friggin' time!!!

Good for you buddy make sure you make some money for your drive time, dump fees, and think it all out the best productive way. You might even think of working a chipper into the bid also with the cost of the rent and drive time back and forth to the rental place. Plus your fuel for all of that too Did you get my post about the software it is just sitting here.
We are getting call from word of mouth, yellow pages, Service Magic and quarterly letters we send out to our customers.

Spring and summer were nice while they lasted. I woke up this morning to white ground and snow so hard you couldn't see 10 feet. Did I miss spring and summer, or were they just 2 days long??? Maybe if I blink it will get warm again. Great Cleveland Ohio area weather.

I thought I slept all of spring, summer and fall!!! I had to ask my wife what day it was. Then I realized that we live in wonderful NE Ohio. Only here in 4 days can you get summer temps, snow, a tornado, an earthquake, and flooding Just another set back to spring

There have been lots of accidents in our area from the ice. It seems like it caught the road crews off guard.
