    1st week of steady maintenance- Rain Mon. No go. Tues. was great so we got Mondays work done. Rain Wednesday. No go on maintenance. Move 10 yards of mulch across a muddy backyard. Heavy rain and 38*. Pray my guys will return to work today.
    Thurs, 5:am, phone rings. Auto call from school. No school due to SNOW!!!
    Look out and sure is, white stuff 1/8 of a inch deep on the grass. Can you believe the school system.
    Kids are home so 2 of my Handyman guys have to play Mr. Mom. Now no maintenance or handyman income. (about 25 of my customers are still by the cut).
    Rain set for Fri and into next week. Off to a great start. Ground is so soft now that it will take 3 days to get on it even if it does stop raining.

    "Always look on the bright side of life, (whistle)" From the life of Brian,
    6 renovations and new planted lawns we did last week will be getting a lot of water.

    See you all in Aug. when it is 95* and no water and the brown grass crunches under you feet.

    I will now sign off form the always happy land of SNOWY North Carolina. :D

    I still have piles of snow at the end of my driveway. It just never seems to melt.

    Yep, very snowy in southern Va this am too, the grass is covered but the roads are mainly slush. We had so pretty warm weather in Dec and Jan, I figured we would have winter right till April 1st

    That is what we need jkkalbers. We do still have about a foot of settled snow on the ground, but is is melting fast. Right now it is light snow, 30 degrees and 44mph gusts. Hopefully everything will drift in so I can go out and plow.
