Are people working?

It's raining cats and dogs in kentucky but as I got on lawnsite I saw that 59 people are viewing. Are you all rained out or just slow on work.

I've been on "vacation" since Thurs. Have 2 sisters I haven't seen since Mom passed away a year ago. Flew to E. Tenn for a mini family reunion.

At home, the grass has almost stopped growing, but the majority of leaves are still on the trees. But last week rain off and on for 3 days--after 4 very dry weeks--so the mowing will resume tomorrow.

I have really started liking this time of year for the reason I finally get to slow down after busting azz all summer. Will really miss that now that I am about to start a "real" job.

I figured I was the only one rained out. I've got a question what do you guys do in the winter to make money besides plowing snow?

We had a heavy frost here this morning. The lawns weren't clear until about an hour ago, so I told my brother to be ready at noon...a shrub / tree trim job and a interior plantscape lobby visist is all I have planned for today anyways.

Just using the morning to catch up on paperwork and let the lawns warm up before I head out the door. Things are really slowing down now that the cooler weather has arrived. In the winter I do snow removal, Christmas light installation, firewood sales and tree removals.

been raining on and off in st. louis for the past week. I worked Friday and Satuday, and today its raining again. My wife and I are leaving for Mexico on Wed. and we will be back on Sunday. Next week, I will start my leaf clean ups. During the winter, I have been doing some junk hauling work for a few real estate companies. Nothing pretty, but it is cash flow.

Raining here. All I can do is watch about $1000 worth of grass seed wash out of my yard. Good times!
