I'm thinking here in NC we're going to transition from winter directly into summer about the 1st of May. Seen it happen before - things are starting to pick up just a little.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

I disagree. we are still getting precipitation. that is the best sign of all. think about last year. some places have never been this hot and dry in our recorded history. even through the dust bowl. I did my first landscape in february. im happy to see bits of snow come down. itl warm up in a few weeks. this is much much much more normal compared to last year.

it's rained 3 straight months here with only a few days off here or there. we don't need any more rain right now that's for sure. we didn't have a drought last year. it was normal here.

last year it warmed up early but this year it's warming up late. need it to be in between but nothing is perfect which is the whole fault of the human existence.

nothing is perfect is the fault of hte human existence? erm... before we existed there was an ice age... that was far from perfect and we had nothing to do with it.

but here in michigan. my 800 per month customer was a 25 per month due to lack of rain.

nope you don't get what i was saying. i didn't mean it's the fault of humans the weather is messed up. i'm saying this world is just messed up period. that's the joy of being a human and living this life. nothing is ever right. it's always screwed up.

BTW, humans live through the last ice age which only ended about 10,000 years ago in North America and is likely how humans migrated here from Siberia.

That was us this past Sunday. First time I've seen hail in Tampa area since I moved here. Started this morning in fleece hoodie and ended up sweating in a T shirt. Windy as all hell. Temps in the 40's tonite. Still sprouting winter weeds.

hey weeze I've noticed alot of your posts lately you seemed extremely bummed out about the terrible spring start. I feel for ya, I've been having the same difficulty issues right now. I'm in a wierd and confused state right now. My buisiness isn't really designed to survive a 4.5 month winter like we had this year. Keep your head up we will be busy eventually even if it's not till May. My wife doesn't understand why Im weird right now. I told her I'm suppose to be a man out there working right now and there's still 30 degree temps here. The thing that sucks was my whole crew is starting this Monday. And I'm low on work because of the wheather and low on capitol. I hope we can survive.
