    When is the last day of clean-ups for you?

    Assuming the weather is not terrible for the next few weeks, what is the last day you hope to be doing fall clean-ups this season. For me I'm, hoping it'll be around Dec 17th, maybe 20th at the worst. It could even be earlier than the 17th, but I'm shooting for the 17th and assuming a rain day or two.
    Last year with the rain, wind, snow and frozen leaves I didn't even finish all the clean-ups entirely and spring clean-ups were a bit sucky. This year seems to be going much better. So, what's your situation? I'm always excited to be done by Christmas. Do you do clean-ups after Christmas regularly, or do you always try to get done before that? I'm sure the dates will change from north to south and that some are long done, like you lucky Canadians.

    I am down to 31 clean ups but I have no employees sticking it out so it has just been my partner and me for the last week. We still have been getting 3-5 a day I figure I have 9 more days of clean ups. But once we get a real snowstorm the game is up but I will keep going till that happens I may just make it. We had over 100 clean ups on our list so I have made a dent.

    Just talked to Tony earlier - we have 130 to go. Should be done by end of December. Still have a few landscape projects to get done too.
