Yup, I'm hearin' ya.........
Good news is that we are back on the upswing part of the drought/wet cycle for the next few years.
On average over the past 20-30 years it's been roughly a 6 year cycle up and down.

I just keep all of my high lifts sharpened and relent that if I sleep today I will be working on the weekend. (AGAIN) I took my sentar sport in for a recall this morning and they gave me a rapid height 52" 19hp for a loaner. They had gators on it and it totally sucked. When it started raining I brought it back to pick up my mower and told the sales guy if he wanted to ever sell that thing get rid of the gators and put some high lifts on it.

The rain is a challenge but a drought is a down right nightmare. I'll take the rain anytime. If this keeps up it will be a banner year!!!! Have a good one. Matt

Too much rain is just as hard on the bottom line as too little.As the son of a dairy farmer I have had to deal with weather all my life.Just remember all the good days you could be lookin out the window cooped up in Walmart...

We've just been expierencing Florida weather, because of the hott and humid weather it creates those nasty 20 min afternoon thundershowers. Thats all we've been getting, enough to keep the grass green. Crabgrass is starting and its gonna be bad this year.

This rain has been BAD!!! I don't think we I have had a single week since the season started without at least 3 days of rain or more each week. I've still been able to mow weekly, but have had to work in the rain a lot :angry: . I sure hope the rest of the season isn't this wet...the lawns never get a chance to dry out!!!:dizzy:

Ya........
I'd rather see some mist coming from the discharge chutes rather than dust.

I cannot really complain about the rain since I only have a few accounts. Even if I had a lot of accounts, I think the rain is great especially at this time of the year because all of my lawns are looking good. Sure hope this weather keeps up...
