Its going to be cold for a few days too. Last time this happened was 2010. It lasted for at least a week that time. I was really hard on sea turtles.

That's my favorite! no grass mowing season anywhere.
Yard crew

I'm with you Cathie......the days when it was fun to mow are long gone. You are looking at Jose and Hose B, or, $1500 worth of "Never mow again"..................LOL....and I haven't since they went to work.


The Falling Iguana's down in Z's and Big Rons-land made the National News again......LOL

One of the main reasons I loved where I lived in Florida was you only had to mow a couple of times a year. In the summer it was a swamp and the winter it was too dry. Here in Ohio we have these zombies that will mow the same spot over and over again until they are mowing dirt. I've actually seen that. My revenge was when I got to see them actually have to hire someone to resod and plant grass so they would have something to do (I guess)?? and darn I didn't get to see that one about the Iguanas. I'm sure Google will help me out though.

I've actually hired a crew to maintain my yard.
It's just $30 bi weekly.
For that money, I feel pretty good about it
You should Z....15 bucks a week is fantastic! I don't think I could find someone to return a phone call for 15 bucks a week! Great job finding your guy!

It took me a while but after 55-60 I realized that I need "guys", I've got two Aces. I've got Andrew, State employee who runs a lawn service on the side and he's a family guy who lives 2 blocks from me. He does my leaves... does it twice for 300 total automatically and he dug my 5'x4'x12' long hole so I could pour a reinforced concrete wall. He also did a bunch of lawn/fallen tree(30" dia) cleanup. He's good and has a work ethic that puts 99% of folks to shame, including me!

Darin is my handyman....Good guy, honest and ALWAYS calls or texts if there is a change in plans. He never "not shows up". He put in my doors, windows, kit floor, crown....

I never argue price and tip everyone 10% on every job,incl on the leaves.............Take care of your guys and they will take very good care of you. Can you imagine how fast they react when I call?

yeah, I need "guys"

Break in temps here finally, yesterday I think I saw 44 on the weather station & today it's supposed to get to 50F!

I thought "bi weekly" meant twice a week???

Don't want to be the grammar police but you asked!... Biweekly or bimonthly is every two weeks or every two months. Semiweekly would be twice a week. Semimonthly - twice a month, etc, etc.
