Oh no its snow!!!

I had a huge day planned today, alot of mowing and a quick clean-up job. Got everything ready to go last night, filled up the gas, sharpened the blades, checked the weather they said cool but nice. I wake up this morining and it snowing!!!! Not much but just enough to put a damper on my day. It snowed just enough to cover the grass, nothing on the pavement though. Oh well looks like I'll catch up the books today. So much for taking this Saturday off. Oh well just goes to show Mother Nature will have her way.

Yeah it was in southern NH as well this morning. Huge flakes too! Hopefully all the clean-ups will get done before the snow flies and sticks.

Consider yourself lucky. We got 5 inches on Sunday night. There is still 2-3 on the ground. Talk about a set back, not to mention, excited customers. I'm starting to wonder what will happen if it never really melts all the way, and we get more. This could turn into one hell of a mess.

1 to 3 inches here this morning. Depended where you were how much fell. Not very consistant.

I'm looking at 60 yet that we need to get cleaned up. This snow is the slowest melting snow ever! Kinda like watching paint dry. It doesn't help that we are a solid 10-15F below average. A little sun and some wind and we'll dry out. If not........well, we won't think about that right now.

I wish we could get some snow here. Last year we got a huge ľ of an inch. That was the only snow we got for the entire the winter. Last year my snow plowing contracts were pure profit, as I didn't even have to start the truck. This year might be different. My contracts are for the year and not on a per snow basis.

Yesterday was just cold- working in 30 degrees grinding stumps. Got snow last night, maybe an inch stuck on the grass. Too slick and wet to do scheduled shrub removals today. Friday will be a busy one.
