    its been a horrible week for me, but I still intend on getting everything done by Sunday and probably call it quits for the year on Wednesday.

    I feel like jt5... Every day seems critical now, even half days. We had scheduled many final cleanups/mowings for Mon, Tue, and Wed, so properties would look good for Thanksgiving. The forecast does not look good any of those day. I fear the weather window may close any day, and the work we want to finish will not get done. I would like to work at least two more weeks, getting all the cleanups done and a large scheduled trimming job.

    For me, every day (or half day, weather permitting), except Thanksgiving ....

    We have been done as of monday because of snow and high winds. Going to snow again tomorrow and on and off for the next week or so. Still had about 20 to get done but they will be there in the spring.

    I should be able to finish my route by Monday. I'm planning on taking the rest of the week off. I will then make a final round on a select few properties that still had some leaves hanging on this week and call it a season. I should be completely done by Dec. 1.

    The same here too. I HOPE it gets warm again, so I can get some extra cleanups.

    I'd rather do leaves than plow, and right now we've got about 1/4" of snow on the ground so I can't do either.

    It's just a waiting game now.

    Leaf cleanups will be done Wednesday, reg cleanups next week, mowing will be done the end of next week, landscaping sometime in Dec. and brush cutting will take all winter like always, but hey can't beat $50 per hour when there is nothing else to do. And running the biz well that never ends.
