YES, SPRING! I share the feelings of the poster who has been experiencing rain for a month. My yard is saturated, and I'm going nuts. I had to make a raised round bed for my pittosporum; it was drowning and turning yellow. I've been selling stuff out of my garage, and just getting out of the house to eat lunch around 11. The rain won't stop. The forecast says it may end on Thursday. I have to eat less too, or i'll get heavy real quick, because I'm not burning the calories. It's a battle with weight. I'm ready to get sore and grimy. Bring it.

I'll take spring any time too. Being a small lawn care operation/college student I am damn near broke right now just because it hasn't been snowing. I plow with a local company but that does me no good when it won't snow anything more than just a few flurries.

I just finished my last clean ups a few weeks ago. Not even thinking about spring yet. I am heading down to Florida in a couple weeks for a long over due vacation. Been hitting the weights and treadmill pretty hard and hanging with my kids. Do not even want to look at a mower. Unfortunately I have to take take the grandstand in to the dealer for some work, I don't even want to hook up my trailer.
