What do you like to do in the winter?

I was wondering if anyone has brilliant ideas for winter businesses other than snow removal? I hope everyone had a profitable year!

I rarely get down time (except for last winter) but this winter I will be busy getting fert license and expanding that new venture. Also getting back into hunting and ice fishing. But business wise, I start up in Feb. for mowing bids etc.

We stop for 2 weeks at Xmas and keep on spraying. We see snow once every 5 years.

With the new call of duty coming out, that sounds like a good way to spend the winter. Luckily, I'll only be down for a month or so.

Yup, Lol. The winter gives me time to play games and go to the shooting range to break in my new handgun. But I'm sure I will still have some work to do around the office. Praying for snow though.
