    I just got in from my first time back out working for the busniess since fall. Man did it feel good! It was only a quick cleanup at the Fire Station but it's good to be back.

    Has anyone else in New England started up yet?

    The station is the first to clear up in the spring and first to burn up in the summer.

    We have around a foot in the shade still, and lots of mud in the sun.

    Today was a tease, now I'm motivated to finish building up the trailer with a bunch of compartments and storage units. I'll post pics once I'm done

    Sounds like the coast has much more snow pack than you guys up there. It will be until at least the end of the week before we could consider doing anything, even then it will be very wet.

    Good luck up there.

    Hey Nelson..what's up?? The Peak still has plenty of snow huh??? I am getting ready to begin starting to prepare things to be put into action soon.(This means that the snowmobiles are out of the shop, the sweeper is in, and the mowers will follow.) Still not taking the plows off just yet...will wait until at least the 1st week of April just to be sure. Then the sander comes out, high side boards on the 1 ton for clean ups and many trips to Cousineau's.

    Looking to get back at it.
