    My bro just finished handily whipping an upscale office building into shape from 10pm-1am. Installed a boat light on the mower, have headlamps for our heads. Icy cold working conditions for cutting hedges! Tough to see the overall look. Weedwacking is tough. Brother was falling asleep blowing. This is new for us, I hope it works out!

    Anybody else have the balls to try this (or the insanity)??? This ain't just mowing a field....

    I thought about doing that. I have some convenience stores to do and I think they are well lighted so I may be able to do them at night. But really, this week is unusual as far as the heat goes. I'm just going to tough it out and drink water, use my big hat and take it a little slower.

    Used to work late when i was at the airport and it closed at 11.Start at 12 and so easy no high traffic volumes No planes to run you down! :waving:
    I loved it.Seeing the sun come up was something real nice.
    Beats the heat for sure.

    Did 2 car dealerships, a Famous Daves, and an auto repair place from 10 pm to 1 am last night.

    I too like working at night, there's no one around to get in your way or worry about.
