    Well tomorrow is the first day back to work, Yahoooo. Finally can get out of the house and go make some $$$. Spring cleanups with the temps in the low to mid 40's. By the end of the week highs in the 70's, so here we go. Anyone else in the northeast-midatlantic start yet?

    I wasn't gonna start until next monday, but I may go out friday since it will be so nice and get the rust out. Tomorrow the ground will still be frozen so I'd do more harm than good. Tuesday trade show. Weds buy supplies. Thurs get equip ready, friday maybe start?!?!?!?!

    I may not start for another 2 weeks, honestly. We'll probably start advertising "officially" next week. I usually start clean-ups kinda late, but once we are rolling it's FULL steam ahead.

    Still quite a bit of snow on the ground here....I'm prepping equipment this week, I have some RR tie and fencing work scheduled for next week, but it looks like clean-ups won't start until after St Pat's day. Can't be any worse than last year, we didn't get started until April 1st.

    We have a couple mulch jobs and a couple cleanups to do and with the warm weather this weekend I expect the grass to start getting green again. So we should start cutting in the next 2 weeks or so if the weather holds out.
