    customers are calling because the grass needs cut and the neighbors leaves are in their yards. my season should of been over 3 weeks ago but the weather is great, we're still in the 50's and the weather man said we'll be in the 40's and 50's for another 2 weeks. looks like i'm not gunna buy a plow this year it won't be worth it.

    uhh ok. Just because the weather is nice for a few extra weeks shouldn't mean you can't plow snow.:confused:

    Hey, where is Struthers at? If it is southeast of a great lake, you may just get that snow you're after. The lakes are nice and toasty. Throw a few Alberta clippers over them, and you'll see some nice dumps. This weather is really remarkable. I'm usually done as well, but these lawns are still growing. What's up with that?:confused:

    We just got 3"-5" of snow earlier this week. Now the snow has melted and the bermuda is still green. Looks like everyone gets one more cut this year and that's it. I'm ready for a break, this is rediculous for Oklahoma.

    old saying......
    never try to cross a bridge before you get to it......
    winter isn't here yet
  8. Same boat here but we are picking up leaves and customers calling to get lawns mowed.

    Like was said before don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    Snow will come if your not prepared. If you don't get a plow then it will snow for weeks while you watch others make big$

    Being prepared is the name of the game. And Lawn Care is the cake. Snow removal is the sugar in the icing.

    consider yourself lucky! Take the extra money with the season being longer this year, but don't hesistate with buying the plow. Usually when fall drags out into early winter, winter drags out some into spring and the snow comes late.

    ok, yes keeping this in mind last year we onlt had 6-8 snows of more than 2 inches, if that many. i just don't know if it will be worth buying a plow.
