    Here I sit trying to figure out something else to do with my thumb while wait for the snow to melt. I made a couple of bucks on the 2 storms that came through this week but lost twice as much on fcu's that I couldn't get to. I WILL GET THOSE CLEAN UPS DONE.Anybody else out there raking leaves the day before xmas?

    Cleanups are the last thing on my mind right now with 6-8 inches of snow on the way tonight and tomorrow.

    We got a couple of inches of snow here. I'm going to have to take vacation at my other job (fire dept) and work every day until the holidays to get these cleanups done.

    If possible, I will work up to the 23rd and then if needed finish up in January. At this point, Fark it!

    Myself as well as most LCO's here started our final rounds late last week. We're all screwed. Will probably be out in a few weeks weather permitting & work when we can. I still have not quite 200 final c-u's to do. Not to mention it sucks b4 holidays to lay guys off 3 -4 weeks early!

    No way I'm giving up on the clean-ups. This has happened in the past, and we were able to finish most. We've got 50-60 final clean-ups to go. I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed that this storm fizzles out, and it looks like we will be getting some weather in the 40's for Sunday/Monday/Tuesday. Hope for the best.
