    I remember that, I think down here that year we had snow as late as April 11th. About 4-5" heavy wet sloppy crap.
    Most people had there v boxes out of there trucks, so they where speeding salt with walk behind spreaders,lol. I still had my spreader on, and made out good doing side work just spreading salt after my route was done :p
    Hopefully not this year! I already have crocuses coming up near the hose :cool2:

    troy, i dont know about 3 years ago...but last year (my first year), i got a client on 4/27 - first client, first job. Ever....

    then i went to cut his yard again on 5/4 (the next week) and it was snowing when i was unloading the equipment....it was the weirdest thing ever. it was just flakes for 15 min coming down, but still, there was snow in the air....

    thats Michigan weather for you. When my wife moved her I had to explain to her how the weather changes from the lakes. She just looked at me like I was crazy, until a bright sunny day turned into a snow storm

    don't worry about it. My server has been acting up lately, so maybe it was my fault

    man, your percentage moves up and down just like the michigan weather...hehe

    i moved here from Florida. lived there for 8 years. in florida during the summer....the you wake up to a perfectly blue sky, kinda like yesterday and today here....then at about 12-2 pm, it turns into a black rain storms. it rains for 15-20 min and then it's cloudy for the rest of the day.

    you can almost set your watch by those storms....crazy.

    when the rain stops, you can see the steam coming from the asphalt and the concrete. you feel like you are in a sauna.

    I do see though that nothing but snow this week and very cold temps. If this keeps up I won't be starting work until April
