    Just across the state from you and there's two feet of snow on the ground. We should be starting cleanups in Spokane around mid March, cutting in April.

    The 3rd week of March to the 1st week of April, depending on the temps, for mowing. Cleanups and pre-em apps in early March. 6 weeks to go now.

    What part of the east coast did you visit and why would you feel sorry for those that live here?

    I'm 90 minutes from the worlds most beautiful beaches:D and have year round work.

    I went to New Jersey and Pa......
    In the Northwest we have year round work too. I am not one for heat anymore as it NEVER get's HOT here- well, maybe 2 days a year it hits 90.
    Why do I feel sorry for the east coasters? Try their tap water! LOL!:rolleyes:
