i just been ridding the 4wheelers relaxing and starving through the winter

The plow truck just sits and looks lonely right now

Thankfully 3 deer during hunting season at least allows me to eat some meat a couple times a week and the wife working full time keeps a roof over my head.

come on spring time

Yeah, hopefully I'm right in my strategy and didn't inadvertently hit the snooze button.

Thankfully I have a full time job but this winter sucks @. I went and bought a snow blower for the winter and we haven't had more than one sprinkle of snow. Last year we had several blizzard. I know this is Oklahoma and I shouldnt have bought it probably but I wanted to try and capitalize on some snow. Oh well I'll just have to keep eating "I told you so cereal" from my wife till I can use it. I saw a guy mulching leaves with his maybe I'll be reduced to that

We're in AZ where the weather is great in the winter and you suffer through the unbearable heat in the summer. I agree with those who said that getting ready for the Spring with promotional items, marketing, and getting on social media is what should be worked on now.

If you have time, get some new training or add a certification to your services. Lots of training can be found online now. It takes awhile but pays off. And, it's better than just sitting around waiting for something to happen.
