Change in job title due to weather!
Permalink  
 


Well I sure as heck can't clean roofs when its 10*, so I loaded the SNOW PLOW onto my ATV and I'm going to clean drives tomorrow. We're supposed to get 3-5" of snow tonight and the temp tomorrow nite is going to around 1*.   Every year that we get snow I can make $400-$500. in several hours right here in my subdivision. $30.00 per drive in about 10 minutes each.  Usually not that cold though, so I'm probably gonna freeze my a$$ off.  The little guy in the last pic in my youngest grandson. He's my pride and joy!!

That is last winters picture. Everything is all orginal including the dark brown hair, which is starting to get a little "salt & peppery". Always have had a "youthful" appearence. LOL<LOL

Gary

I had to take a second look to find your grandson. Looks like he's getting in a nap while you do the work. I have 2 grandsons, 3 years and 3 months. Nothing like grandchildren to keep you young.

No, he's not napping. He's just dressed so much he can't move, Grandma's idea!
He is only 13 months in that pic (last year). You're correct about grandkids keeping you young. I have 9, ranging from 18 to 2. Sometimes I feel like a teenager again. Doesn't last long thoughyawnyawnbiggrin

Hahahaha! And I thought it was only in Florida . Your right, they don't know chit. They are real good at making excuses though. I think they go to a special school to learn how to cover their butts for being wrong all the time.

Larry,
     I have a really close friend that lives in Tallahassee, Florida. He said the temp was 18 degrees when he left for work this morning. Hope you guys aren't feeling that down there! There won't be any roof cleaning done with those temps!

Brian

It has been EXTREEMLY cold here Brian. It's been somewhere in the low to mid 30's in the am and only warming up to the 40's and low 50's. Factor in the wind and YEA, it's been cold. I did one job this week on Tuesday on the water and froze my butt off. I won't be doing that again anytime soon. I've got 4 jobs lined up for this week and I hope it warms up. They are calling for 70's by weeks end. They better be right. I'm over it. hmm

Sweet pictures, Gary! You really do look young. Don't worry about the salt and pepper hair. We (women) like to call it 'Silver Fox' rather than grey. That grandson looks snuggly.

I am soooo jealous. I haven't been on a four wheeler since I lived out West. Utah was awesome!

Brian, Larry is right. The weather has been BRUTAL. Larry and his wife, Carol, stopped by the shop today to pick up one of his surface cleaners. It was cooollllldddd out there. Larry and his wife found a sunny spot to take care of routine maintenance on their rig. I felt bad and brought out some red licorice that we always haveon hand in case of emergencies. Poor Carol's hands were freezing! For the past several days, I have awakened to see the digital thermostat read 37 degrees........37 degrees in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Gheez. Is hell freezing over?

Well I'm gonna be back at again today. We got around 3" last night and its still snowing. Might be a little slow today, being Saturday, and a lot of HO's will want to get some excercise and maybe heart attacks by shoveling it themselves. Kinda sounds like roof cleaning doesn't it!lol
