    I had a lady call me and she wants her yard cleaned up on Monday, has a good amount of leaves... I usually wait until the grass begins to green to do clean ups, but she is insisting... My biggest fear is the ground is so soft right now and my Tiger Cub will tear her yard up...

    I haven'r even passed out fliers yet. All this snow is running into my mowing. We just had 5" of snow finally all melt today from 60° temps. It's supposed to be in the 60's the next 5 days so I'll pas out fliers tomorrow. Peace

    We still have some snow on the ground here in Rhode Island. However with temps in the 50's this week it should be gone in a few day's. I will have an ad in the paper this week so I hope potential customers are as ready to embrace spring as I am.

    Bring it on :blob3:.

    Looks like next week if it stays warm and dry. The last couple days it has been 50 and 60 and the snow vanished. Last year It was April 6 when we started

    There is 4 feet of frost in the ground but it was 55 Saturday and gonna be 62 today. There still are 5 and 6 foot plowed piles of snow in the North facing lots that don't get sun. We don't start until April unless we get 60's from now on and warm rain to thaw the ground.

    I am in southern Massachusetts. The only thing I am cleaning up is the buffalo wing sauce off my chin. I have about a foot of snow in my front yard.
