What have others received this week for rain?
I hear you. I could of skipped a few yards this week because of the lack of growth. Today I banged out 10 yards in what seemed like in half of the time it took me just a few weeks ago. Most of my customers treat me very well and let me just continue mowing during these dry spells. Even when there is nothing to mow many of my customers will still have me cut. Either way I am lining up some brushclearing jobs for some added revenue. Last year I did not miss any weeks mowing.
