    Last year I was able to start my first spring cleanups on March 12, along with a big advertising kick. However this year I have a foot of snow on the ground, I am hoping it goes away quick. Any one else having the same problems?

    Got 2 ft on the ground (snow) looks like it will be a while before I get to exercise the lawn rake and trac vac..
    They are forcasting another 4-8 inches of white stuff for friday, at least my blowers are getting a workout this year.

    Uhhhhhhhh nope
    can.t say Ive seen any
    not lately anyway
    saw some of that on the news once
    hows it taste anyway
    gotta love this green grass down here
    nothin like the smell of fresh cut grass on a warm afternoon
    that scent tends to linger in the air as it gets towards sundown
    8.5 inches of rain last week sure helped too
    supposed to rain tomorrow, one can only hope
    that creates the need to go out and cut some more green stuff next week
    I.m really loving this
    Yall have a nice night

    Don`t rub it in to much Homer or I`ll have to wish your dress blows over your head and knocks your pretty hat off. :D

    I envy you being out there mowing Homer. Don`t make us all so envious that we all move to southern Bama.

    To much snow for me to start thinking of actually working on lawncare. Much of my mowing equipment is in a shed in the back of property with about 18" of snow on the ground to try to get through. It's going to be soon though. Just bought a new 200 gallon sprayer today. Until grass I've become very creative in services to sell. Tommorrow I'm going to be taking a water pump to several accounts to get rid of 6" of water that has no place to go. Surrounded by 12' snowbanks that are slowly melting and adding to the problem.

    Look at the bright side, you have a second income and one that is less labor intensive than mowing. All we can push down here is cold weather in the winter..........not much demand for that.
