    I usually get out and start the first round of spring cleanups around March 20, last year it was March 18. I'm still not out yet, thinking possibly Friday, however realistically probably more like April 1. I'm in southeastern Mass...how is everyone else looking?

    I have some small shrub removal job set for tomorrow and some plow damage to put back this week. Cleanups will hopefully start next week...

    Still snow covered and wet here. Probably around the 10-15 of April. Last year was silly. March 20. Earliest ever.

    At least 6 inches of snow on the ground here. Plowed snow-piles are still 4 or 5 feet high at the end of each driveway. Last year we worked 8 days in March. I bet we start this year on April 8.

    I'm planning on starting April 1. It's amazing I have accounts only 9 miles away and one has no snow, other has 4 foot snow banks!
