    I'm willing to bet a week's revenue those people bashing him for being out will be calling him when a pipe bursts. He can risk exposure for THEM just not anyone else.

    And kids shouldn't have it because of challenges like licking ice cream, coughing on store items, creating the hashtag boomer remover, Tide pod challenge and for forming their life philosophies from 120 character posts.

    We have nowhere near the cases your state does, even less in my county, Everyone are avoiding people...stand back at doors, do a loop around people....this was even last week when we had like 50 cases in the whole state. People are being respectful here.

    But then again....no lawn care rules ever apply in your area either so I guess this is the status quo that your area is always different from any other area in the entire world.

    Either ya make all this up or you live in a very selfish Twilight Zoney place ever.

    Been dead on the phone and website contact form the past week. Got 3 contact forms yesterday...woke up to 3 more.

    Temps were cooler, now they're warming up. Fist sunny day in a week here yesterday coincides with the contact forms. I'm expecting more calls for service.

    I’m at 4 cancellations due to either home bound or financially stressed not sure which customers. 3 now have said gates will be left open to avoid contact. Snow payments tricking in slower than normal but only 1 request for relief and no overdue yet.

    still acceptable numbers for turnovers compared to renewals. But too early yet. Will know by mid April when all mowing cobtracts have to be confirmed.

    spring clean up requests slightly below average for this time of year.

    Haven’t put down any mulch yet this year..definitely a first, usually mulch until the grass is really growing.. clean ups are coming in, along with other estimates..
