Any of you guys not mowing anything yet. With the cold temps and rain we have only done spring clean ups, but we did cut it low when we did them. Most of our stuff is still brown and just starting to come out of dormant stage. How about the rest of you guys.

100 miles west of you. we have mowed about 3/4 of our accounts once. Some LCO's here have mowed some props twice but I haven't, as I think thats pushing it. Growth has slowed considerably in the last few days.

I know, we had a good spring last year but it will warm up next week. We had a great winter here though, more than makes up for this spring.

No to much in the way of mowing, just a few cleanups here and there.

Ground is super soft. Doesn't look to improve for awhile either, with more rain on the way through midweek next week.

I wish all the rain was snow, I'd rather plow than mow. lol

More and more rain. I think I saw puddles on sides of hills today.
