        After the roads are fixed and the pontoons get reattached... LOL

        Look on the bright side and go and sell new lawns and landscaping.

          Our weather this fall has been setting records, we have been back to flooding for the past three weeks, 8" in two days over the weekend, roads are wasked out, homes destroyed, mother nature is setting a number of records, we would normally have a pile of snow by now, good thing it isn't snow as we would have received over 6 feet of the white stuff in the past two weeks. Then the wind has been something else, I thought we would shut down a month ago however still getting calls for tree work, and we are still going.

              Will flooding be an issue in your area with all that rain? If so, are there services you could offer to reach out and get new customers? Like maybe cleanups after the rain?

                Saw that rain on the news. Amazing stuff.

                Here in Western PA, it seems like we got winter about 3 weeks early. Generally, we'll get enough snow to cover the grass a few weeks before Christmas, but it almost always quickly melts long before Christmas day, then we'll start seeing regular snowfall well after the holidays.

                This year, we got the snow, and the temps never went back up much above 25, so we've had several weeks of colder than normal temps, and snow that hasn't melted. (But not enough snow to make any money off of)

                        They call that a "Heavy Dew" here in Florida, lol. We usually get 2 - 5inches monthly through the spring and summer months here.
                        I was just reading about the rains out that way and it is intense. You might want to offer a sand-bag special of some kind? Maybe get an Echo Water Bilge Pump and pump water if needed.
