And I think it may have been Patton with the quote, sounds like something he'd say, anyway.:gunsfirin

What's winterization? It got down to 80 degrees today. There were a few moments that I wasnt sweating actually.

Witerizing is for sissys. We irrigation 12 months out of the year:)

On a good note I actually had to put a sweatshirt on this evening because it got below 80*F for once.
Them there rain drops sure were purty to see. Sarcasm re-started.

We don't winterize in this part of CA either....

We just turn systems off when the rainy season begins in late October to early November... and if it's dry in January we turn 'em on again... just run 'em less often...

So does that make me a token Southerner?

My assistant broke out the jacket this morning. It was 53 when I got up and cooled down a bit more before sundown. Fall is in the air. We aerify greens Monday and start everything else after that, including fall over seeding. First HS football scrimmage is Saturday!!!!

ROFLMFAO, I've been in DFW for "winter". We shut down controllers to prevent icing sidewalks 3 times in February............and had 4 days over 90 the same month. You guys can be as jealous as you want, but gravy is gravy and anyone who wants to go on a low fat diet is fine by me. Someone else (maybe a 300# Yankee at a keyboard) will be glad to take the rich cream gravy off the top for you.

BTW, while I was killing myself turning clocks on and off that February, the company made the EXACT same as if we had only made the contractual one or two trips/month for inspections.

Yeah, I really miss spending 3 months walking around in all the clothes I own to keep warm.

2 things separate the men and the boys down here - July and August. ANYBODY can work when it's cool out, try 90/90 heat/humidity and see what you got.

During the winter, I am in shorts probably 75% of the time. The other 25%, I'm either dressed for the slopes, or naked next to my woman :laugh:

I'm one of those guys that will where shorts and his winter jacket during a storm.

What I don't get is why they even bother with irrigation up north. Are people up north so lazy they can't water their yards the few times it might need it on hot 85 degree summer days:rolleyes: We southerners would have a lot better use for our money than spending it on a short term usage irrigation system and yearly blow out costs.:drinkup:

You go right ahead and create it. And I'll think about trying to push this $5000 upgrade to old ladies on fixed incomes. Nothing like stealing from the elderly. Texas style.

If one wants to have a nice lawn it needs to be irrigated. On a normal summer from mid May untill mid September it will be between 75 -98 degrees.

There are also a lot of people around here that make good money. They dont cut their lawn , they dont clean their own houses and they dont lump hoses around.

Nope, she says either "let the dawg out" or "get that critter outta heah" or "either the dawg is fixin' to go or y'all are".
