Its got to of been one of the worst winters I can remember for years now. Just doesn't seem to want to give up. I keep putting jobs back as I don't want to make a muddy mess and cost myself more in reinstatement but I'm running out of other things to do!

I am not one to moan to much about weather but even i am sick of the bloody rain. At my yard we are on a farm and the ground is horrible as theres no drainage really. We have been working around swamp conditions since long before Christmas. The couple of nice days we have had really made me appreciate the sun. Its also pretty cold for this time of year

"Swamp" just about describes the ground ATM Ross and the cold is pretty severe, for as you say, this time of year.
Good job it's keeping the grass growth at bay ... too bloody wet to have to mow any; 'til it dries significantly

Think everyone has had a real gutsful of this winter
