    I can't win around here, If its not raining its high winds and cold, snow every 5 days still, and it seems like everytime I have good workable weather I've either got an overload of bids to go look at or some other problem comes up that won't allow for me to get any cleanups done.
    here I go again this morning COLD rain and snow on the way, possibly several inches by morning.

    80 here and dry as a popcorn fart. Grass should be growing like crazy, but lack of rain means no grass.

    that sucks too!
    I don't need perfect But, I sure would like a few days of decent, workable weather.
    I plowed 11 times in Nov. & Dec. 0 plowing in Jan. ( Our biggest month) once in Feb. and once in March, I can usually start clean ups in March. Had 3 inches of snow on Mon. Now here I go again.
    I got a brand new Permagreen and can't even get a wind less day to calibrate it.

    Its been similar here too. We have one cleanup that is taking forever it is our biggest one and we have been there three times, it just keeps either raining on us, snowing on us or we are overloaded with the rest of our schedule.

    I don't mind rain but rain and 35 degrees sucks

    Everytime I find myself complaining about the weather I think of the hurricanes I don't get, the tornadoes, mudslides, wildfires, earthquakes that don't affect my area. And thus the snow and rain are just an inconvenience to me.

    Yeah, only a good day or two here to do any spring clean-ups. First of next week looks good, highs in the 60's and mostly sunny. I'm hoping with the .6" of rain we got last night and the sun and 60's first of the week, the grass will be growing by next week or the week after. I can't wait to start working and making some money....:dancing:

    Good Point.
    I think I'm just starting to get concerned about getting everything done on time. I got my PG the other day and need to get it calibrated then get apps done before the crab starts, with the delays on cleanups plus new customers coming on the schedule is becoming scary.

    Dido to a lot of you. We had 3 big clean up's planned for Thurday and I woke up to 6" of heavy wet snow, luckily the plows were still out. This week is a total bust but next week looks good, in the 50's and 60' and sunny.
