    that's really not very funny. Sounds like he was trying to get final cuts done and out of the way to make his springtime a bit easier. Plus, I had customers who said "if there's time and the snow melts, can you come back for a touchup?" Hmmm, let's see, $150/hr fall cleanup rate, I like money, yeah sure!

    If there's snow on the grass then half the grass is most likely matted down and frozen. when it thaws it will look like crap. I don't mow in snow. :) Was there snow shooting out of the discharge chute? THAT would have made me laugh!

    I've done clean-ups when there is still some snow around. The last few Decembers we have gotten snow early in the month, then it melts off and we go back to work. Last clean-up we did was the second week in January this year.

    We finished a couple of cleanups last year when it was snowing out. The Walker sucked up the leaves and the snow. At least it was easy to see where you went.

    Half the grass was covered in snow and there are the small mounds on the edge from whoever shoveled. He was running with a bagger so I didnt see any snow throwing lol.
