    Well, it seems like we're getting another early "event" today and agfain tomorrow. For us here in south Jersey, appreciable snows prior to the Holidays are very uncommon. I cannot believe that this is 2 years in a row now. Like myself, many other landscapers in this area begin our final clean-ups after Thanksgiving. With the extreemely windy and abnormally cold weather this week, we got less than 15 done. We spent 1.5 days doing some sodding, but now we still have over 150 clean-ups to do, and we'll be putting on the plows for sure now. I hope the warmer temps next week melt this crap all away. Otherwise, we're screwed ..... again. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Well, I guess I'll go into the office and check to see how many people call me that have yet to return their snow contracts. I can feel them panicing.

    Turfdude, this really is just like last fall. A year ago to the day of our first snow last year. I still have lots of clean-ups to do, somewhere around 60-70, and lime and fert apps. Right now we have 3"-4" on the ground and more on the way. I'm screwed. Let's hope for a Christmas miracle and all the snow will melt and we can get back to work:rolleyes: Stay safe if you're out plowing in this. Mike
