Oh I am sooooooooooooo sick of this weather....

I thought maybe..Just maybe I could start to mow some accounts next week and now they are calling for 4-6 inches of snow tonight

I was mowing last year by this time......

If I remember my history correctly in 1849 it was so cool that it snowed in Washingting DC on July 4. Winter may not go away this year

If it keeps up, we'll have a few more moving to our State of FL.

I took the last plow off today. Still have one sander to remove. I put on the leaf loader on another truck. Went to the store bought oil for the mowers and paint for the plows. Now tomorrows rain is supposed to be snow.

We just got hit all day with snow and it's still coming down. It ranges from 5 inches to 11 inches in the area.

Some places had thunder snow. I'll tell ya what, it's pretty cool to get thunder and lightening during a snow storm, but it dumps the snow when it happens.

Been out since 10 this morning, gonna catch a nap then head out again. It's still coming down.

However, i'm done with this snow crap, I'm ready for spring. Not just calendar spring, but temperatures and green grass.

AMEN to that.

I live in the Washington D.C. area, and this weather is killing me.

Kinda hard to convince someone to hire me to mow their grass when there is still snow on the ground...

Ratchet, where at in the DC area? I planned to do some mulch jobs today...I guess thats out of the picture. But here is what I don't understand....they are predicting 1" to 2" for me. Snow started early this morning, we already have an inch, and it isn't stopping till noon. Looks like another botched prediction.
