I am not giving up yet on hoping for an early start to the season. But it sure is not looking good. My yard is so wet, you can't even walk in the grass. On the side of my property the drainage ditch from the road is overflowing and flooding out the entire back of my property. It is going too take weeks for it to dry out.

I hear ya man so much rain and snow melt and everything, this snow tomorrow won't help it at all after it melts. Clean ups are going to be soggy, muddy messes, blah.

I am done plowing no matter what. I just cleaned up all of the gravel in my yard. I will just drive through it until it melts. I would hate having to do cleanups in this weather. I seen some guys in front of my wife's office building doing some work a couple of days ago. I spent today changing the oil, filters and spark plug on my Grandstand. I also installed the OCDC. That mower is hard to work on, everything is jammed into such a small place.

Do any of you guys do or know anyone that does tree work in the area? I have a client that needs a quote on removing 2 trees and I've been asked by a couple other clients if I do tree work. I don't even know anyone I could refer them to so I'd like to find someone that does decent work...

It's warm out and the snow is just about gone!

You do it yourself? This place is pretty much in Monroeville, let me know if you'd be interested.

I just got asked for some tree work in Gibsonia also Jeremy; I'll go look at in the next week or two and send you the details if you'd like.

If not, that's fine, but I'm just trying to help my customers find what they're looking for.
