    Sling yards and yards of mulch. Just like I am going to do this morning. Is it rotten in Pewaukee today?

    Get estimates out, change oil, trim in the water, haul debris away from other jobs, maintain equipment, repair what has been neglected, maybe sleep an extra hour in the morning, anything you probably would not be doing when the sun is shining!

    get some extra sleep, take care of any running to the bank or store i may need to go to. Respond to calls for my fire dept that i normally couldn't do if i was working. Fix anything that is broken.
