I can bottle it up and sell it to you all, or I could use some help with the big fans to blow it in your direction.

Anyone needs any we have plenty here in St. Louis regional area.

Come and get it. Come one come all.:angel:

I am not complaining, but I think the rest of this week will be a wash. The rain is fine, it's the torrential down pours.

Tuesday washed us out up here. We got almost 2" in a day. WOW are my fertilized lawns popping. I just wish it would get warm. Only been in the 60's.

Just store it somewhere and in august when it won't rain, let some of it out... But the humidity is a real killer.;)

I checked the stats for my area.

May- It rained 21 days out of 31, and we got 1 1/2" over the normal amount.

June- so far this month it's rained 8 out of 13 days(And it's raining again today):(

Everything is mud,low spots are so wet you sink in up to your ankles just walking. I have some wet spots that haven't been mowed in a month.

Here in NC it is forcasted to rain for the next 10 days straigt. I saw this on line at weather.com on Monday morning so I started at 6:00 am and worked till 9:00 pm Mon, Tues, and Wed and finished all my props. Now I'm just kick back till next week and hope for a break in the rain.

Hey we could be in a drought!:mad:

We have had plenty in Tennessee but not enough to slow anything down.

Yeah same deal here. I can't remember 2 days in a row without rain over the last month. I'm so far behind on my schedule, I hope I can catch up before the snow :D

Looking better for the beginning of next week, if I work 18 hours a day for about a week I might catch up.

Has rained heavily in Oklahoma for probably about 10 of the last 12 days. Starting to really get to me! Doing some tree trimming, working in my own yard, doing odds and ends - getting WAY behind on mowing. At least I understand by now that this happens sometimes and rain is good for the plants - but man, this has been a LOT of rain. And of course the customers understand - they know its been raining - no need to even call and explain. A day or two of rain can really set me back - but this has been insane! Oh, well - good to have a break from the long days......

Excessive rain seasons drive up the demand for mowing services for 2-3 years. Rain also drives out the scrubs & wannabees.

Let it rain.

Mike I know what you mean.We have had a ton of rain here .Some heavy downpours then the sun comes out and gets humid.We started mowing in the rain this morning and couldnt get a good quality cut with the rain and wet grass.First three properties we were soaked.But sun finally arrived by 11 and dried things out in a hurry.I am still 3 days behind on my route.And more rain is on the way.Got to luv the show me state:)

Even though we've had alot of rain, actually cloudy with down pours, a lot of lawns(Bermuda) are not as green as they should be. Why? Is it lack of sunlight because of the clouds? Dull, light green to yellow spots and areas.
