    No can't say we have that feeling here. Time is moving too fast, and the season is just about to start. Calls are already coming in, 4 estimates in the last 2 days, and a few existing customers already calling asking for some extra work.
    There was a time when I wished my life away. "i can't wait till i'm 16 so I can drive." "i can't wait until i'm 21 so I can legally drink." "i can't wait till we buy our first house." "i can't wait till my little one is out of diapers."
    Now I know better, time moves too fast as it is. :cry:
    This is our 8th year in business, we're not jumping thru hoops looking for another season to start.

    I am ready. I am hoping by next week or the week after to get back out there. If the weather stays like this I will be happy.

    I'm kinda in between. I am looking forward for this season, but time is flying way to fast. I am ready to get out there and start making money again. However, the work leading up... Doesn't seem like there is enough time in the day.

    Quotes are going out and I start curb clean-up next week or the week after. Pretty dry so far, but I think the rain in the next few weeks so we'll have to wait and see.

    I'm almost ready to cut grass. 2 more cleanups and then 2 large (by my standards) mulch jobs and I'm ready.

    I started cleanups already, on Monday. 50's today, and the next 5-6 days are gonna be in the 60's. I was surprised once i started to realize how dry it everything is.

    Nothing yet, the news just said a chance of snow next Monday and Tuesday. I hate spring clean ups, but its a necessary evil in this business. But so far we have signed over 15 new customers that all want a spring clean up of some type.payup
