The only problem is no one is thinking spring. I'm sure some are waiting to see of we will get snow or not. If not I think some will be gone.

I here ya. No snow and really none forecasted for us for a while. Next 2 weeks look dry for us. But I would rather be dry of snow than of rain. Well see how many get out due to no snow.

Our biggest company will lose close to a 100k per month when it doesn't snow. I'm sure they will be hurt along with my self if we don't get any. On one 90 day map it shows avg moisture for here and another shows above normal. But if you look farther out guys down south will ne real bad. Above normal temps and below precipitation. We look to be average for temps and precipitation, until fall then hot for here again.

Thats alot of $$$$$ to loss / month for snow accounts. Crazy weather. Was at our block supllier today - brought back trailer load of pallets and there selling retaining wall black left and right they said. Slowed a bit but there sales are like early/late fall for the volume of block they have been selling.

Concrete guys are still going full force as well as guys tiling fields. I might mulch my leaves later this week. It's suppose to be in the low to mod 30s for atleast the next couple weeks. Well I lose 10k a month avereage with no snow. With less accounts last year in December I billed out 15k. This year 2500 for December. But that's the nature of the beast. Too bad there.wasn't insurance for lawn and snow, other than having money set a side, low over head and all that.

He's an hour from Sioux city. It wouldn't cost much to shop across the state.
