    O and I'm going to rant some more on top of everything else one of my red max trimmers rattling it is in cylinder so I think as far as trimmers I may get an echo I used to run then for years loved them than my dealer went to redmax but I like the thought of the 5 year warranty even commercial I have had great luck with my redmax but I like that warranty on echo

    I have two guys out sick. They work together. And what is worse is one says he has the flu & the other says his doctor said he has Bronchitis. So if I encourage them to come back, does the guy with the flu catch Bronchitis & the guy with Bronchitis catch the flu.

    I think when they are ready I'll send them to big mulch jobs separately & just get the mulch and dump it there. And let them do 10 yards each without contacting each other, or anyone else.

    I got in a weeks work on my backhoe. I’ve only grossed about $400 mowing so far. The grass is really just now starting to green up. And now it’s rained hard the last 2 days putting my mulch job and backhoe job and other 2nd and 3rd backhoe jobs on hold and it’s supposed to rain all week. Hopefully I’ll at least get to mow a little this week since that’s the least ground sensitive work. My backhoe is parked at least a week probably longer.

    We had a 4 days of no rain and 70s. Got a lot of work done yesterday before it started flooding. Rain at least part of the day today. Sunny 80s Wednesday. Just keeps on raining on a regular basis. Everything is green and blooming. All this rain is making us look more like Ireland ie green:laugh:

    Sorry, but isn't this normal weather for Colorado? April and May can be some of your heaviest snow months.

    yes not usually may. May can be a wet month sometimes but yes we can see some of our biggest snows in march and april. It depends on who you look at I look at about 3 weather sources a couple are the same one saying not as much they are saying blizzard conditions I think around noon and could see anywhere from 2 to 4 or 6 to 10 inches. Crap if it snows im going to just get naked and go freaking lay out in the front yard. Makes me mad lol. I know you guys probably would like to see a video of that lol
