As soon as the weather breaks.If there isnt snow on the ground get going or other companies will get a jump on you.This is really the first decent weekend here in my part of connecticut ..the ground is pretty muddy so its still pretty slow but with the warm temps it could pick up by next week.

I've been estimating jobs for the last two weeks now when there hasn't been snow on the ground.
