Default Emergency!

Alright, I have 20-ish leaf removal jobs to complete.

I have had the worst of luck getting them done. I managed to tackle 20 or so already, though I am running out of time.

This weather has been very crummy, and winter is near.

I WILL NOT be able to get these jobs finished...... what do I do?

I could write a formal letter explaining the uncompleted services will postpone next year, though this is no good.

It's at the point I'm getting phone calls where everyone wants first priority and I've just about had it!

One job can take me anywhere to 25 minutes to 2.5 hours - I've done all the quicker jobs, though I have quite a few bigger jobs left to do.

I have to have my trailer in storage soon (i forget the date).

What am I to do? It's been wet every day, and people have hired me specifically for the end of season leaf removal service I had advertised.

My customers will not all understand my excuse, "have we had a day without rain? No!"

so I'm kind of stuck.
