    Its just not ethical here in Southern Ohio to even own a plow. I couldn't live on just my Lawn income here though. I also work year round in a factory. Wish I was a teacher, then Id have it made.

    Winter is slow here as well, but that is nothing unusual...
    If anything, last year's busy winter was...

    Funny thing is, I've about spent more money since December than I used to spend in the busy spring season.

    Reason is, lessons learned:
    When the spring rush starts, SAVE your next winter's money FIRST no matter what.
    Do NOT spend it foolishly (or wisely or any which way) on equipment if at all you can make do, because you need to save MONEY!
    First off, if we have another drought, it will get you through July-August.
    Then you get into the winter blues, and it's like lalala...
    AND you got money to spend, and plenty of time to do it in.

    Because I do get calls this time of year, but they're few and far in between...
    And every single last one of them is for crap work at cut rate prices (work your tail off for free).

    Took me 5 years to learn that LOL.
