    Last weekend, it was in the 60's,
    Just yesterday, I saw a crew mowing some commercial properties, and this morning we have 2 inches of snow on the ground!

    Gotta love the four seasons, and where else can you get them all in just one week!

    Have to laugh at stuff like this, or we'd go crazy. I guess it's going to be a couple weeks before we get started. Just passing the time here :waving:

    Sounds like OMaha. Sunday it was sunny and 55. Monday we got about 4 inches of the white stuff. Supposed to get rain and a little more snow this evening. It better dry out for the cleanup I have scheduled for Saturday.

    HEY! That's what we say about Michigan. Don't like the weather? Wait awhile, it's sure to change.

    The warm weather the other week has been great for business!! I has gotten customers to start thinking about services they need. My phone has been ringing and I've been out meeting with customers and preparing bids while it's been overall to crummy to do much work here. Was trudging around in the snow with a lady today who wants landscaping installation done. Gotta love the windy city!

    too true. It might be a sunny day, but once a system hits Lake Michigan, its a total different story
