It's always a good day when you can fill up the truck and still have extra money. How much snow you guys end up getting.

yeah thats the way i looked at it!! I was working by myself so it was a long day. We ended up getting about 5inches total but sat to sunday we only got like 2-3inches of lite snow. So i didn't think that was to bad considering there wasn't to much snow.

Yea when I'm working with myself the day always seems longer than if I was working with someone else.

Yea but even with mowing once you start to do it with two people and you go back to doing it yourself it sucks becasue your so used to doing only half the work.

Yea small lawns are probably better with just one person but usually I have 2 or more lawns in a row so it sometimes is nice to have 2 people working.

Wow thats nice then you really dont have to move the truck and you can just do all the weedwacking and start mowing if the other person isn't done.
