    Ugh! Same here in southern minnesota. Got an inch or so 2 days ago.
    It hasn't melted. Regular clients are up to snuff with leaves. Have
    others begging to come do their leaves because they were incompetent
    and waited till the last minute. Piles of leaves everywhere in my city.
    Along the streets, in the gutters and on the boulevards and yards.
    All covered with a serene blanket of snow. Not to mention before it
    snowed, my r3tarded city pretended to use their elgin street sweepers
    to unclog the sewers and gutters and curb sides, but as they swept, they
    also sprayed water behind them which completely whetted up all the
    leaves that those crappy machines didn't pick up. So what do you know?
    Ya, they added to the weight of the already cool non drying leaves they
    left behind.:hammerhead:

    XYZ, where are you located?

    We had about 2.5-3" in the grass last Tuesday night & 1" in select parking lots, a week ago tonight I went out and plowed the 1" triggers :D. It took a few days for it to melt, but was gone by Saturday, I was a bit worried about it not melting though. Now it's been so cold the ground (surface/turf) is frozen on the north sides of buildings on properties. Took Monday off from the field to spend in the office because it was so cold, this morning and afternoon wasn't much better but there was less wind. I'm excited for this warm up the rest of the week to say the least, hoping to finish clean ups Friday or Saturday, then let it snow!!! 2" every other day with 1 12" storm per month.

    Down here in the Rochester area with DA Quality Lawn & YS.

    Yeah I'm watching the snow melt as we speak haha. Drip drip it goes.
    Still pretty cool and definitely windy on top of that. Going to be mushy
    and wet tomorrow for sure. E-mails and phone calls and texts just keep
    bombarding in. Folks are a beggin' for help. Seriously kind of just want to
    be done with fall. Snow business is itching to zoom into action.

    If things go right, we'll be finished with clean ups tmrw and be ready for snow to fall!!!!

    If more calls come in for clean ups, it'll be for top dollar. I want to wash the mowers, trimmers, & my truck & enclosed trailer to put them away for the year.

    These past two days in the 50s plus tmrw have been great! I wore shorts & a sweatshirt today.
