With the amounts of snow I already have a few customers that are scared about not just missing work and losing but speding the money for me to plow, walkways and roofs. With gas prices going slowly up customers will not have that "extra money" for mulch jobs, and other side work. I was right about the snow and I have a strong feeling it's going to be a tight wallet for most customers for the new year. CT is in a snow strom stream and we will keep getting more. We have beatin all snow records and it's only Jan. The new smucks that are getting into snow plowing and doing it cheap will now have money for mowers and charge cheap.
