We're seeing light at the end of the tunnel. So far - so good for us! We kept quite busy this winter with a nice, small retaining wall job, some clearing work, and late winter / early spring we hooked a nice patio gig. After that, for a few weeks sales trickled, and I mean trickled, and I was very nervous. But now, we have more worked lined up than we've had for the last 2 years at this time of year! If it wasn't for the federal gov't being such a huge employer in this area, we'd probably be history. A large percentage of the areas we serve consist of residents that are employed in the DC Metro area through the fed gov't. And these people are making up the majority of our clients. Because our spring got off to such a lousy start, we booked a vacation in July, as I was thinking our workload would be slow. Now I wish we would have booked it for August. Frankly, I'm burned out. I've dedicated nearly every waking minute to sales, in some form or another, whether it's meeting with prospectives, working on estimates and designs, etc. How bout you folks?
