Here in SW Arkansas we are having our first big thunder storm of the year. Been raining a lightning all night and still coming. Temp's are in the high 50's now and will be in the 70's all next week.<p>Can hear the grass starting to grow. It sure will be nice to get back to work on a normal schedule.<p>Ya'll have a good day.<p>Jim

With temps in the mid 70s last week we are seeing the first signs of spring. Today I saw iris reticulata, snow drops and crocus all in bloom. What a refreshing sight!<p>----------<br>Lanelle<br>

We've never started our newspaper ads this early, but with this mild weather, do you think spring clean up jobs could come in this early? (Northwest Indiana)<br>

Hey, Mike- there were guys out in South Bend this past week doing cleanups. I'm just doing some pruning now though. Hate to have to redo cleanups.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana

cjcland, A big money maker for our company is fall and spring gutter cleaning. We charge $20.00 flat fee if we can walk the roof and use our blower, if we have to use a ladder or ropes, we charge more. Most don't run over $50.00. Most people up here don't think twice about dropping $20 for having their gutters cleaned and in most cases it takes but a few minutes. It diffently adds up for us. We also pick up yard debris in the spring when the weather breaks. It's always a question for us as when to start our newspaper ad.
