    We got up to 33 here today. :) Decided to go out this afternoon and did about half the route. Left the other half for Friday. I was layered up and I was still a little cold.Left the carhart bottoms at home should have had them with me. They will be the first thing I grab on Friday that is for sure. Probably will be a late start due to the cold though.

    Tom at least you can still get out and make money pushing some snow. Better than an ice storm that is for sure. -+

    Local weather guesser just said that in 2 weeks we are going to have another cold blast come south. :cry: I still have mulch to put down but have been holding off just for this reason. What is everyone else doing about mulching? My thinking is get everthing ready and prepped for the mulch then once the weather breaks put the mulch down. If I get swamped with the mulch I can always hire some temp labor like high school kids that i know.

    I guess it is time to watch the weather sites alot more again to see what type of weather is coming our way.

    Same here Drew. I'm getting some estimates done for the rest of the week, and that's about it. I should go out and put some dimension down on a new account picked up today, but I don't really like putting stuff down on top of snow. lol Hopefully next week will be better.

    All I did today was drop off some bills, drop off a few estimates, and go grocery shopping. Went to sleep around 5:30 and just got up. Nice nap I guess

    Drew, the only thing I did was cut today. No cleanups. That would be a waste of my time with all the crap blowing around out there. I just hope it is not as windy next week that is for sure.
