Nothing here either. I did one salting this year, and the only reason for that salting was the handicap ramp is wood (which is very slippery during the winter months if any type of moisture gets on it).

Perhaps a light storm here middle of next week, but that will only bring a couple inches.

I see a few lawn care companies on the drive to work (through the South end of the city) still doing leaf jobs, for lawn care providers this has been an excellent fall in our city.

It's next to impossible to budget for snow removal here in Halifax, I have seen many winters where I never dropped the plow once.

I started to advertise junk removal and basement and Garage clean ups.
I just need to keep the money rolling in. Got bills to pay and equipment to buy etc.

The lack of snow has really allowed us to concentrate a lot more on marketing and selling for the 2012 season.

The only thing different that we did this year, because of the lack of snow was do a lot of gutter cleaning jobs. We did those right up until last week, which is unheard of here.

We are about a month behind on when we normally receive our first snow storm. My biggest fear with the lack of snow is how is going to effect my selling of flat monthly rates for next winter. The only thing that will save us now is a very snowy January and February.

no snow and I hope it stays that way. I only have a few drives on per push and one commercial account the rest all pay seasonal. I rather make 20 grand sitting on my *** then having to plow for a bit more.

lmao. Yeah being paid to sit on my *** is nice, but without work I never really noticed how boring I am.. ahaha! I want the snow to stay away, but I think I'm losing my mind.

Anyway, my imaginary friends and myself need to get back to our game of eye spy with my little eye.
