    You won't hear about our first lawn up here in Mass until about the 2nd week of April.

    40 degrees and rain here today, which is SLOWLY melting the 2' of snow that's on the ground..... Had one un-finished fall clean-up due to arrival of snow 2 days before Thanksgiving, and the only days since that the ground was not snow covered was 12/23 and 12/24............

    Spring comes soon, doesn't it?

    Arg! I cant wait for it to get back to full swing! I have 8 lawns to do Monday, one of my crews is out working right now, they have 4. payup :D
    After this long winter, finally! Some dough!

    Yes, Yardman1, the last yard we mowed in the year 2002 was on December 30. But all this January and Febuary its been raining so much that the mowers just sink in the mud. Leaves horrible ruts.
