I'm dreamin' of a white christmas???

Curious how many of you guys store the mowers and put on the plows? I picked up a nice contract of 12 locations for one client today that was a new lawn care customer this year - same company who who used to mow for them used to take care of them when it snowed.... Obviously he must have done as good a job at snow removal as he did at lawn care (NOT). Here in Virginia people go totally nuts when we get 2" of the stuff - Don't believe me? First snow we get......take a ride on the beltway - it will make a believer out of you......... Yeah - I'm a transplanted yankee..........been here 30 years and I still laugh my a** off to watch them try to drive in snow...

I'll be plowing this winter. Used a snowblower last year, but got smart and bought a new truck with a plow. I'll stay alot warmer this year.
