    Well as you know we had early snow in December, and none of the Final clean ups are done. This week we had a very lovely week with 50-60 degree weather. We were able to do a lot of clean ups and get an additional 5k for winter. I still need to finish up like 1/3 of my houses but I did all the good ones that pay $$$. I am hearing snow for monday , so I think that's all we'll be doing until spring as far as clean ups. Any of you on same boat?

    finished sunday and cleaned and stored my stuff thurs. ... done. some problems with perma frost layer below thawed turf in shady areas working this time of year . I had to blow the leaves to sunny areas or the mower would slide on the frozen areas below the surface.

    Going out this morning (Sat) to finish a big one we started on Thursday. Hopefully then we will get over here to my house! Mine is one of the few on the block that isn't clean, go figure:laugh: I have maybe a day or two of work after today, a few very overdue clients who promised to send a check, I'll do the work if I get some $....
    Looking forward to a little time away from the business, away from the clients, away from the employees, away from the phone, need to recharge a bit.
