Hey Bobby, How about a snow surcharge?

    I had no choice but to cut lawns today in the snow, it was really wet here in MI the last two days so I tried to hold off, but today was the last thread. It was really cold and I really suffered, i'm thinking a flat rate snow surcharge of about $35.00 on top of the regular service charge. Would you agree?

    Maybe if we get enough come monday I can charge to shovel the lawn, then mow it.... :D

    ok, i'm down with it, but i'm not sure how much to charge. i do "dew" surcharges, but snow is wetter than dew. hmmm, screw it, charge double, and substitute cat litter for the grub treatment. all is well, that ends well

    That must be awful just after starting the season. Maybe you can keep the plow on the truck, and after you cut the grass, drop the blade and scrape the drive on the way out! Double billing~
