    I got a call today on my cell phone ( forwarded from biz line during snow storms ) and it's a guy asking me if we can come out and pick up a pile of leaves today.

    The picture of my back lawn will tell the rest of the story !

    I would probably do it, but everything is winterized and put away !

    I don't see the problem here. Just go and blow the snow off of the leafs and then you can use a shovel to scrape them off the frozen ground and bag'em. What's the big issue with a little snow and ice? Might want to mow the grass for them too. :p It is like nobody has common sense... go figure.

    Umm, we use a truck loader which doesn't like ice and snow, it's off the truck and all that would be too much work to do. Mowing is out of the question and will damage the turf.

    We are in quite a different winter mode up here than you guys are down south.

    I posted it more as a joke if you could get that.

    Yea... I got that. Heck, if your loader is afraid of the snow you can come down here and use ours. It has never seen the stuff. Damage the turf..... naw..... it's frozen. LOL

    You guys still out mowing? Or should I phrase it " mowing " :)

    We finished up a couple of weeks ago and now it's onto snow removal.
