    I don't know about most of you, But, I am starting to have withdrawls from the smell for fresh cut grass (Well mybe it would be the smell of green $$$) (same thing). It has been a long "cold" winter here. I have over 5' snow banks still on my front lawn (and another stormcoming in tonight into tomarrow). By the looks of it I might be moving by august (lol it'll take that long to "Rid" of my white mountains), and the ditchwitch might be able to go on hard ground somewhere in sept. (only kidding but if this winter doesn't get outta here soon, I am gonna go "NUTZ")

    This year I found the real meaning of "CABIN FEVER!"

    I know what you mean I should be outside getting equpment started and washed up. It's usually in the fifties by now. They're calling for freezing rain sleet and snow for tonight and tommorow. Last year I complained that I only got to do snow twice so I guess I got what I wished for. Got another little one due in september and hoped to hit it hard early and make a little extra but I guess time will tell.

    I had some clean-ups and pruning to finish last fall when we got a snow in early November. I haven't made it back yet! Maybe the snow will melt soon????????

    I am with you but just remember the heat and the exhaustion that only a 95-degree day with 90 percent humidity can bring. I will personally enjoy the cold for a few days more. I love working in Northern Va.
