Back when I was mowing yards I would always get started if it wasn't already raining. Sometimes I'd get lucky and make it through the day without a drop, and sometimes I would be soaked halfway through and have to quit after finishing an account.

I'd go for it unless it's raining when you wake up. Who knows, you just may luck out and come away with a nice tip from a happy customer. :laugh:

if I made 50.00 tip every time I had to mow in the rain.....I would get 50.00 dollars every time it rained this year so far, always get caught in it
