    I only have 10 clean-ups, left but there is about 4 inches of snow on the ground. I am hoping I can get them done by Christmas. Even though I plow, I did not want to see snow this early, on top of that, I blew out my tranny plowing, that set me back 2200$.
    Is anyone else waiting for the white stuff to melt so they can finish up there season?:dizzy:

    It just melted here yesterday. I had a renovation(removing 5 large coulmnar junipers and 2 dogwood trees) to prep for an install yesterday.Tomorrow we have 3 small cleanups to do, a wall to finish, and next week, we have a 8000sqft new yard install. It is now raining(all day), and I don't know when the ground will dry out any, if at all to get the new lawn in. I could have done without the snow until after Christmas as well. My plow rig is about ready to go into service, but I'd rather be doing prep work and removals until then. I hear my pals in NY & CT .were busy this past week,though.More Snow=More Dough.I'm ready for anything...bring it on...:D payup payup

    6.5" of snow yesterday, more over the weekend and more in the forecast for early next week.
    I dont like messing around too much on the grass when it's this cold and the soil is frozen rock hard.
    The only trees stil shedding leaves are the pin oakes and they shed their leaves throughout the winter.
    I guess what's not done by now is gonna stay undone until spring next year.
    Good Luck

    I also had about 10 more to do. We'll see if I can get any done before X-mas. If not, I guess I'll be doing more spring clean ups then I expected.:(

    I have about 5 more to do. plus a walkway to do and a clearing job to do. I may get the clearing job done if we don't get snow this weekend agian because alota what we have is melting now. I just hope it all melts or we get another storm soon, as long as we can keep working I'll be happy.

    Yeah, if we get another snow I will be happy, but I just feel like I havent finished the job if I let clean-ups go all winter:confused:
