    50’s allot if they full blown clean ups. Have about same number left here but they all been weekly visits since Oct so mostly just low volume touch ups on hard surface and turf areas near houses at this point.

    So you can take a picture of their driveway and front door but not a tape measure in their lawn?

    I did the tape measure pic. You must missed it. Will track it down this winter.

    Nah. A good portion of them are just our last visits-some second, some third, some fourth. Maybe 15-20 first time visits...looks like I have 3 good days next week. Possible partial days the other 2.

    We had a good amount in Mass, messed up the clean-up Schedule. Stayed cold for a few days so nothin was melting. Hit 60 today with torrential rain. Snow gone, back in the game on Monday. Who knows how long. As my compadres in AA say "1 day at a time"

    Good news about the 2 early snows is it going to eliminate many the weekend warriors and part timers and hobbyists who threw in towel after first or second snowfalls here.

    Theres huge contrast between props cleaned after first and second snows and those that were not.

    Wrapping it up today. Light dusting last night and very cold. Ended up almost as much done as last year and worked leaves near same number days.

    From first leaf day Oct 11 to completion Dec 17 there were 15 lost days due to snowfalls on Nov 11 and Dec 1 or rain days so Total 43 days leaf days worked. Last year 48 days.

    So you take the rest of the winter off?
    Or do you snow and ice also.

    Well, we got 2 more days in. Cutdowns are done. Cleanups could go for awhile but the 2-4" of snow is putting a damper on leaves.
