Rain vs Drought??

Wish we could get some of what you've got!! Hasn't rained 1/4 inch here in my locale in the past 2 months. Started 3-4 weeks early and now have just about completely stopped mowing. Burn bans have been in place for our county for about a month now. Mow most places every 3-4 weeks 'cause there just isn't any growth. When we do get rain, it will be at least 2 weeks before we get enough growth to mow again. Just doing some small jobs to fill in where possible.

If I had my choice, I think more rain than less is better!! Three years ago we had one of the wettest seasons on record, but the past 2 have been dryer than normal and this one may be the worst one yet. Seems like it's just feast or famine anymore!
