    JrocTx - said it well about the central Texas area in and around Austin.

    We have a nice long growing season for lawns. It does get a bit hot in the summer but the humidity is nothing like Houston.

    The winters are very mild and installs go on all the way through.

    This wintetyear our revenue is actually a bit better than during the "season" because of installs.

    There are still a lot of yuppies here who spend money like they did during the dot.com era.

    The state government and University of Texas seed a lot of coin into other yuppie groups.

    IE: long season, nice climate, tons of uppity yuppies = money being spent with LCOs.

    Right here in N Minnesota..

    7 months great weather, hundreds of lakes, bow hunting season starts saturday and last 3 months.

    There is hundreds of million dollar lake homes... Just got a new one last week,
    $500week, new one yesterday $140-2m. hrs., lots of beautiful estates..

    My friends landscaping business does not even do any jobs less than 80K unless he has no work..
    The rich are pretty nice, and they spend money during bad economy.

    Then I go to southern mexico for 4 months of vacation and some volunteer work in the coffee fields.
