    We had a decent little ice storm hit the area last week. I have been insanely busy (tree guy xmas bonus) and see work for a good part of the winter to come.

    My hometown didnt get hit hard, but we made money clearing driveways, and have feelers out on a ton of widow makers/trim work once the ice gets out of em, which I dont see happening in the forecast anytime soon.

    But, 10 miles north there hit good, and we have landed jobs that we start tomorrow morning. Once we get moving tomorrow, I imagine Im gonna be slammed for at least a month.

    Anyhow, if you wanna follow our pics, I will try to get some up here, but for now check out the FB page.

    (I started as a tree service, dropped that when I had kids and went to mowing, climbing when it paid right. I was getting ready to relaunch a tree service come spring, mother nature just express laned it. Off to the toy store for some new gear soon. I really need to get my PPE gear in order....first orders of mine Thursday morning.

    Shiawassee county got hit pretty hard as well. Some clean ups will wait till spring because they are froze down. Have fun out there today just be careful.

    Good News for the Tree Services in Michigan. Just be sure to be safe and don't let that extra money force you to make bad decisions.... SAFETY FIRST
