Adam,I wish I could come up with something,because the way its raining here it doesn't look like we will do any work this week.
you can always mulch or prune or work on equipment
what's up Larry?
we lost yesterday.
and this morning, we tried to mow, but got soaked.
all my extras i have lined up, i really can't do in this weather.
Same here...we lost Mon. & Tues. this week,the rest of the week doesn't look that promising either.
This week looks like a total bust here also.
I don't have any customers on a monthly price, I get paid per cut.
I need to re-think this for next year but I don't think it will go over well around here.
On the good side, all accounts will need it after all the rain. youll keep busy. Im just telling my guys not to come in, and for me, spring shop cleaning!
i hear ya. i have to clean out my storage shed, i can barley walk in it, and three months ago there were two tractors and a snow blower in there that aren't in there now! it is only a small shed, but with any luck it will be teice it's size at the end of the summer.
There isn't anything that you can really do about it. I usually schedule 40 hours of work. By doing so, if it rains a couple days, we can work daylight - daybreak if needed to get caught up. I'd rather work a few days than all week if I can get away with it.
