Heck, I am getting a new aerator delivered on Friday. I just hope that I will be there and not busy doing snow. I want the season to begin so bad.

Turfco. I thought that I would give them a chance and see the results. The product was a reasonable price, only about $2,200.

what happened that made business to be cut in half?

The whole snow aspect is mind boggling. Like this year up here is doing great for the past 2 weeks. In the past 2 weeks we have received the same amount of snow that we received all of last winter. That's why when someone steps out to buy a brand new truck, with new plow for winter time everybody just laughs at him because the snow predicting for the winter is a role of the dice. We have considered moving snow removal operations up north to the Gaylord area. You never know though. Hope that everything goes well with ya.
