rain poncho is the key. ..that is until the lightning starts then it's time to stop for a while . look at this lawn , we are 4 days behind now so we have to cut as often as we can to catch up. we cut here 1.5 hours after the monsoon turned into a steady trickle. it was soft but also about 6 " high. so what ya gonna do ?

Man, I worked to get AHEAD of schedule. I saw that stuff coming from my new fangled computer thinga mabob. It's not really much for conversation but, it keeps me informed about weather.

Geez how long did it take to blow the average driveway off???

First time we've had rain here since the end of June, I wasn't about to try mowing in it...

Yeah, but now tell'em the rest.....the last few days is the first truly measurable meaningful rain in weeks, so we all in NC have had wide open cutting with very little down time to rain this summer

Working in the rain is part of it ,running redmax trimmers in wet weather will shock you hard never had it happen with any other ope but the trimmers when it's wet and you also have been biting hard like sticking your finger in a light socket.

Well I worked Labor Day because its the first day it hasn't rained in a week. But I probably wouln't have cancelled vacation plans. Be thankful if its as dry as I hear there.

You can ruin your equipment in the rain. Not smart. And if lightning were to hit someone on your crew. WOW! rain rain go away.
