Whoever started the myth that you can't cut wet grass had the luxury of waiting for it to dry.
I wish I'd get lucky enough to just mow "dew." I had to get on to two customers this week.
Two weeks in a row, I showed up to mow to a wet lawn, sprinklers went off the same morning as I'm suppose to mow. I went ahead and mowed the first time with a warning, the second time I showed up and the same thing, sprinklers haven't been re-programmed. I spent fuel to get to the property, so I went ahead and mowed. On a side note, I'm tired of the WET grass. I'd be happy to mow a little dew.
