    I'm with macaw.......rain is killing me..Raining right now.........

    I've got about half of my contract customers to finish up on and 2 will call customers. I should be completely done with leaf clean ups by Christmas if the rain will give up just a little.

    Four to do tomorrow and that is all she wrote...unless I get some calls I guess. Even then I might turn them down. I would like to winterize all my equipment before it gets too cold. Suppose to be 58º ro 59º this weekend and then start dropping off.

    We have been getting a couple of calls here and there for small clean-ups lately,no snow in the forecast until next week so this might be the end of it.

    More like, "When is your last mowing?". Mowing has gotten in the way of my cleanups. Normally I'm through mowing by Halloween, but this year has been different. When I thought it was the last cut for some accounts, I had to mow it 2 more times. I was mowing last week, and still have about 10 properties that need one last cut. I'm still at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to cleanups, but I've learned which ones to do first. My snowbird (seasonal) customers are on the bottom of the list. Out of 50 cleanups, I have 30 to go, not including all the extras people want done.
