It looks like this:

MONDAY

Doesn't mean the weather's actually going to do that.
And I'll just pretend you didn't know this.
Gee, thanks Herler for taking all the time to explain meteorology to me. I'm not sure what that has to do with the subject of this post anyway, since it did start raining just as we finished up the gentleman's lawn. It didn't rain as much as I thought it might, with the main storm going just south of here, so we were able to go back out late yesterday afternoon and do the remaining two properties on yesterday's schedule.
