Have a couple of sod repairs to do whenever it gets dry, snowblowers are always good for some work.
Ya I got some of those, mind you I'm the one that caused them so the pay ain't so good.

We tried to get rid of a pile of masonry and bricks today with the bobcat, and it's funny because the pile's still frozen 6" in but the ground's a sloppy mess 18" away. Not really sure when to really start, since there's no more use in watching the Leafs play.

We started in earnest today I've got blisters to prove. I guess operating a plow controler doesn't give you calouses.
Some areas that are shaded still have frost or snow but all in all the cleanup is going good. No found money yet but we always find something so who knows.

We have a couple of construction cleanups to do, hopefully tomorrow morning before the rain. A small tree to cut down and clean up ( note to self don't let wife price jobs for friends) should only take 1/2 hour. We're getting fert calls and a few spray calls but not giving any prices yet other than to remind people that the prices are going up. We do a couple of bigger properties and the price is gonna scare them. I see a few guys are getting their old lawn rollers out, we're thinking of selling our ride on unit. My wife hates using it she prefers the Steiner and roller behind it, faster and easier on the back. I wanna make a front mount unit but need to find the right roller steel first. Spring is coming.
