The weather is keeping the folks at Eberhardt Landscaping busy.

"Today with the forecast, we've actually pulled about half of our landscape crews off and we're preparing our trucks for the snow," Chris Inks said.

Mowers and blowers are getting put aside, while salt spreaders and plows get reattached.

The trucks were being used for landscape duty, but the weather has many plow customers calling in. Eberhardt's is obligated to remove snow, even when it falls in April.

"Right now most of them are contracted services, and most of the contracts do expire tomorrow, April 15, right at the cut-off," Inks said.

ODOT is also ready to hit the roads. They'll have 55 to 60 trucks ready to roll for the morning rush.

"They'll be in about 6, 6:30, if it comes in before that, we'll call some people in early to start plowing and treating the roads," Justin Cheznik said.

With winter weather, timing is everything. So is having an understanding plow company.

"The way we run our business is if it would snow on Wednesday the 16th, we're going to come out and take care of them anyway. We're not going to leave people stranded," Inks said.
