[QUOTE=Dodge Boys;4333867]Wow.... grass is still green here... LOL

I am blowing soil and cutting trees from last nights' storm

A customer called me yesterday to go and shovel the snow off their grass so it would melt faster.
I did it because it was easy money

In 3 weeks I hope to be mowing

Just got to wax the mowers and change the oil in them!

Yipeeee!

Not a lot of local damage, thought there might be with ground being as saturated as it is!!!

Yeah it was really cold yesterday, just a bit of brush clean up
and using the trusty stihl leaf blowers to blow dirt that blew on the asphalt.

Can't wait for the 13+ weather tomorrow!!!

I put all the winter stuff away today except one salter just in case, winterized the snow blowers, which is funny since we never used them lol, shovel or salt was always easy enough. took the 1 ton out of its winter resting place into the yard, started servicing al the mowers today, new filters, fuel, oil, blades, belts, to hopefully make as stress frees spring as possible.
