I got some cabin fever, lol. Even when we get some nice days the ground is so sloppy wet that you can't do anything. Probably head up Dad's and do some rabbit hunting and maybe take a trip to the mountains to do some trout fishing. Other than that, I am bored outta my mind. Can't wait to get the blades spinning again.

Already? Heck we haven't even had hardly any winter yet. Most of our snow is gone. Looks like early April around here. For droughts sake, we REALLY need a bunch more snow this winter. Another early, hot spring followed by no rain would be a disaster, like last year.

Well since there's no snow and cold, well kind of, I'm ready for warmth and working. Only 3 snows in 2 months is boring.

And this about all the snow we had last year. We need about 300" to catch up to the water table we had when I was growing up.

that's how it is. rains when you don't need it and doesn't rain when you need it.

it would be awesome if it rained two weeks straight in august. instead we hardly get a drop lol.

What o don't understand is when the weather guy says that the ground and area are so moist its hard to get out of the cycle then WHAM its stops and you hardly get any after and vice versa with it being too dry.

Warm here, snow is all melted except some plow piles and I don't think the ground is even frozen. I was thinking of getting started on job ripping out wood mulch, putting in edging and crushed stone. Can't sit around doing nothing hoping it will snow.....

I'm enjoying my work this time of year. Mowing all my accounts once every two weeks, been doing leaf cleanups during the non mowing weeks, and filling in the gaps in the schedule with tree pruning jobs. Hoping to pick up a good amount of new accounts this spring. We could use the additional revenue.
