    I don"t believe it more snow that s###s Last week they said
    it will be in the 50"s this week so I bought a pallet of fert. plus
    lime and 200lbs. of seed I lined up 2 guys to work 3 days so I
    could get started and do some spring clean ups well so much
    for trying to get ahead start. Now the great weather men say
    snow 6" or more with all the computers and radar they have
    today I think they predicted the weather better before they had
    them... Sure I plow snow but I am getting swamped with calls
    and wanted to get started. Anyone else like this ??

    Depending on how much we get I'll be a couple of weeks
    behind!!!

    yup, I was planning on starting next week, but doesn't look like it. I think that we were spoiled last year with an early spring. We had all of our spring cleans up down by the end of March, this year we will be lucky to even start in March

    what happeend with us was we finished all the spring clean ups by the end of March, then the first week of April we got dumped on with snow about 8 inches of snow, then 1 1/2 weeks later we were off and mowing

    I like snow. Although it will push us back a week or so probbly and I did take off all the plows and sanders already, but i'll take it anyway.:dizzy:


    I think if the weather people had a window in thier office they might be more acurate.

    I just watched the noon news and they are saying 3"-6" of new snow or more, for tuesday and tuesday night. I am so sick of this crap, I am really thinking of moving south. I would rather work all year on the lawns than deal with this crap.

    I went to Boston this past Friday and was caught in a blizzard from Hartford to Worcester, MA. - all along Interstate 84. Today it's 54 degrees and sunny. Tomorrow they are calling for an inch of snow. I bought a Lazer Z the first week of March and there were flurries outside. How can one get geared up. I can't wait to get started.

    C&T-just check over your gear and you should be fine. Make sure you stocked with common needed parts, have all your customers on the same page and everything else should fall into place.

    WHat town in CT are you in?
