Well, it did rain all day and we have some thunder last night as well. Needless to say, everything is VERY wet and unless it dries out soon, I can’t do anything as it looks like more rain is coming again Monday now. Please, just stop for a bit and come back later when the grass is brown!
Of course, things can always change, so I will keep an eye open, and see what really happens next week. Weather can change rapidly when it is days out still. I know it should be dry tomorrow at least though, so I may go for a walk or something.

I did a cleanup job today but the weather kind of sucked. It was cloudy and chilly, and it will rain tonight and tomorrow, so there goes any work I might have wanted to do until it dries out now. This weather sucks, as when I want this rain, it will be super dry and hot.
I am hoping to get mowing soon as my grass is pretty green and some small patches are starting to grow now! I look forward to being busy again, as I keep saying every day. If all goes well, and we have a wetter summer than usual anymore, I will be very happy.

Well I did some cleanup work today so I am happy. It was only one job but it was better than nothing for sure, and more will be coming in soon I know! I also worked on cleaning up the shed a bit, and while I still have more to do, it is far better now!
I need to drain 2 of the snow blowers of gas as well, but I did drain the large one today. That one, I shouldn’t say drain as I shut the gas off and topped the tank off really, but none the less, it is put away for the year and I should start mowing soon!

Well, it rained most the da, with the temperature around 55, so a lot of the piles that are left even melted down a good bit. It will be dry tomorrow, as well as Thursday, before more rain comes in again Friday. I say after Friday, even all the piles will be GONE!
I have no snow left in my yard now, so maybe tomorrow I will get the last of the rocks out of the grass. I am hoping to start doing some cleanups soon, but I am not sure when I will be able to as everything is VERY wet now with all this rain!

I think I have narrowed it down to one trailer, but there is another one I want to look at but it its 400 dollars more so I am leaning towards the first one, which is 1300, so still kind of expensive really. I like the Carry-On one, as it has the mesh box on the front, but the other one, a Sure Trac is a landscaping trailer.
I don’t know if there is a difference between them to make it worth the extra money though. That is the problem I face a lot when trying to find something. There are not many trailers that fit what I want, so I have a limited selection sadly.

I can finally say that I think after the rain tonight and warm temperatures tomorrow, that all of my snow will be gone by the next blog post! I am not sure about customers yards yet, or what will need to be done and when, but I should be able to FINALLY get some work done!
I am not sure about cleanups as the yard will be still be soft, and leaves and anything I would need to suck up would be quite wet but I think it will be good in a few days if the sun comes out. The sun angle will help it heat up more as well, so things should dry out better.

Well, most of the snow is now gone and I think all of it will be GONE soon as well! I am looking forward to getting back to doing something. I was looking at trailers today that can hold my zero turn, but the problem is a lot of the gates are too short for it.
I need a long enough gate to have a shallow angle to allow the mower to clear all the way up. I need to talk to some landscapers in the area and see what they are using. I don’t need much, around 5×10 should be a good size but I don’t want to spend a fortune either.

More of the snow has melted but the best thing I did today was fix a lawn mower for a neighbor. I put some Seafoam in it, and it now runs. This is the easiest fix I have done in awhile for sure. Usually, when someone wants me to fix something it is a lot more work.
The weather should be good melting weather for awhile now, with rain this weekend, and warm temperatures for next 10 days. I will be very glad to see all this snow melt for sure! I am sick of looking at piles of white now!

Well, it was a bit warmer today and most of the snow is melted off now. I will say I am glad to see it go as this snow gave me a lot of issues with the snow blower breaking, but once it is all gone, it will make things much better I am sure!
I am going to try and do some writing soon as well I think. I haven’t done much lately, and it is something I always say that I need to do and end up not getting anywhere at all. I will have the second draft done one day I am sure though.

Well, even though it was cold today, the sun was warm enough to keep melting the snow! A lot of the snow in my yard is now gone but there is still a ways to go, especially in the back yard but it looks like it will be gone soon as it should be warmer and rainy into next week!
Once all the snow is gone I am hoping to start going some cleanup jobs at least until the grass needs to be cut. If all goes as planned, I will be able to start mowing soon, but not as soon as I had thought originally as it got cold and snowy.
