    Leaves to snow overnight not unusual here but by Dec 1, 90% of leaves have usually dropped.

    We second week of December and still at about 85% dropped. Two weeks behind schedule and this snow storm not going to melt. Leaf Clean ups Done.

    Major Bonanza for Spring Clean Ups next season

    We are only at about 85% here as well. Several inches of snow on the ground now though after last night. Going to clear the drive out now. Unless we get one of our semi usually mid Jan thaws, no more leaves for us this year. It's windy as heck out right now, and cold to boot.

    Leaf removal price same as if Leaves has been 95% down like usual. But will tack on eXtra charges for Spring Clean Ups.

    Plus the White Gold falling from the sky.

    Mother Nature playing nice this year.

    Have final visits to just north of 40 accounts most of which which will be 30-45 minutes each. The leaf season began early but then the temperatures remained unseasonably warm and the leaves hung on. Swirling 15-20 mph winds today made for a frustrating time plus the neighbor's leaves were blowing onto the newly cleaned properties.
