    My old boss's guys where out Thursday with backpacks and push blowers. I thought about going out to the 2 who called concerned before the snow came back in Dec. I got some weirdo who called yesterday who wanted a quote over the phone for a cleanup on a 100 X 100 lot and gutters. Then asked if I could do it this weekend. LOL. NO! Then she called today while I was at my kids indoor soccer game. I saw who it was and it ignore.

    I'd like to get out there but I'm not doing anything. Everything is soaked. 12 inches of more snow coming Monday. Gotta go put the plow on. C-ya

    I got a couple calls, drove by to assess the situations, and found that even though most of the ground was thawed, still some snow piles. and with the ground so soft, thought I'd make more of a muddy mess than it was worth. Would like to be doing some work if I could, though. Praying for more snow soon.

    when we had that real warm weather I went out and did some clean-ups that I knew had a lot of leaves on them. I drove past other to see how bad they were, if not to bad i pushed them til spring. Hopefully spring starts early this year

    Hey, I'm from East Haven I did alot of cleanups this past week as well I'm all set except for one call I got this weekend but the lady needed the leaves taken away I told her I couldn't because I would have no place to dump the leaves before the snow fall.
