Snow again

Anyone else ready for spring just last week I was cleaning up yards was in 60's and sunshine. Today, had to switch back for snow again. Wish winter would just give in this year, its getting old.

No, that was last season for us here. Kept getting nuisance snow into spring and it kept everyone in the winter mindset. By the time anyone even started thinking about cleanups the grass was growing full steam ahead.

Different this year. We had more snow days than usual, but it seems to have stopped sooner. I'm getting calls earlier than normal.

Good luck. It's tough when the weather screws with your income.

Snow again

Already have been doing estimates and getting calls for a week now. Last year we had snow even on April 15. This was an easier winter than last year for sure

Grass is covered with freshly fallen snow/slush and it's starting to cover the sidewalks too. Been snowing most of the day. Was planning on doing some cleanups this week, we'll see what the weather does. Spose to be in 40'a all week with chances of precip just about everyday. Its kind of disheartening since it was in the 60's and 70's in early March here...

If you want nice fresh oats you have to pay a fair price. If you can be satisfied with oats that have already been thru the horse, that comes a little cheaper.

Forecast says 30s Friday night and Saturday night.
70s and 80s during the week. Rained yesterday. Chances of rain most days. Weather is all messed up I kinda expect this back and forth in March. I hope it (the cold)doesn't linger into April like it did last year.

I'm so ready for this weather to even out and start getting warm again. We got snow last week, with the previous day being in the 60s... I have a feeling it's going to get somewhat normal throughout next week though, and hopefully April is lovely. I just want to get started on all of my projects!
