    This year was kind of confusing for me. Last year it didn't get cold until the end if October, this year the first week of October and the last two weeks of September we had a drought of no rain, lost almost a grand in sept. and almost two in oct. But other than that I beat my last years income.

    I tried to finish up today, worked till 6pm and was dark! but still have about 6 small lawns to go. But with 5" of snow coming tonite and cold next week I may be done. have 4 aeration's and dormant seeding to do when the snow melts.
    Glad this year is over!!! was a good $$ year. but I'm really tired of looking at drought stressed lawns!

    We came to a screeching halt 3 weeks ago, Nov. 13, midway through the last round and 2/3rds through our fall cleanups. 6" of slushy wet snow, followed by enough cold to end the season. It had been in the 60's for multiple days earlier that week.

    Every time we've come close to melting enough snow to at least get back out and finish a few more clean-ups we get another shot of snow. It's snowing now and we're looking at 4-7" by morning.

    It's only been 3 weeks but it's starting to already feel like mid-winter around here.

    Finally got my last yard done today-MINE. I finished off my tank and got it winterized. I am planning on something different for next year so am going to start working on that tomorrow. Am putting a small tank on one of my Walkers and try to use it as much as possible instead of walking everything. We had a good year and already got several new clients lined up for next season.
