    Moneys money. If you can do the job then go do it. One time jobs inevitably turn into something bigger.

    We have 5 more fall clean - ups till we are done. Like packer backer said money is money. With the weather like this no sense in not doing it

    The longer they sit, they harder it gets... I'd take the work now.

    I actually saw an LCO out mowing a HOA today.

    ... wishing somebody would call me to clean out their beds. I'd be on the road in 15 minutes. Temps are near 60 again (rainy today, but has been dry recently). The Winter is long and some of us are "made to work."

    Just because it's January, dosen't mean that you can't do work. Go do the job.

    Sure why not do it. I did 2 shrub trimming jobs last week. 37 degrees and it was not bad getting off the couch for a change.

    We havent stopped yet, in fact there are still leaves in trees around here!!!

    Of course it was 73 degrees today and the low for the next week is 65.

    Kind of a weird year down here......
