    Until we are back at the watering systems.
    Looks like this week is going to be warm>next week POLAR VORTEX.

    Stay warm everybody.

    Tree work is a great way to stay in shape and sharp for the next season..

    Wait, when did the vacation start?

    Ha, we cut down to one crew of all the best guys. It's amazing how much faster systems get done in the winter when the crews are condensed to only one crew of the best. We have our first set of interviews for the busy season coming tomorrow.

    I usually don't have to let anyone go for the winter, we have our core guys that are year round. Honestly we just stop replacing guys that stop showing up in early oct, by nov. we are down to 5-6.

    nobody plows? we've been pretty busy this "off season". outside of christmas week, which we are pretty much closed all week, we've either been working or plowing the whole time. looks like there's gonna be a good deal of snow this year. its funny, when we have an active winter like this, i look forward to spring because the 60 hour weeks are actually a break from the 80-100 hour snow weeks.
