What are you doing with your snow money?

I have never counted on the money from the snow to run the landscaping part of the business. I run my business to be able to pay my bills right through the winter months. So, snow has always been considered gravy to me.

Now, what to do with that gravy? I just purchased a slightly used Bobcat 335, with all the extras. Did I really neeed it? No, I have a 328. But, I can use it for larger jobs. The rest of the gravy will be set aside, in case I need it. Otherwise, I will have to spend it before the end of the year.

Did anyone else splurge on anything?

Not as big as your purchase, but I picked up a new Shindaiwa EB802 last week.

You will love the V. Once I purchased a first v-plow, I never purchased a straight blade again.

Saved up all I could for a new mower, probably a Vantage. Still need more though. Most of my Gravy went to my daughters college
