Couldn't cut anything here in Jax today, just worked on some hedge rows and bed clean outs. Gave me a chance to get caught up. Not too much rain, just an all day spitter.

3.95 inches, 12 miles NE of Port Charlotte, ground was already saturated, many properties are to wet to mow. Will just work on bed work and light cleanup mostly this week. Nothing like the East coast had.

My Rain gage which is brand new and very large, might not be working correctly. I am showing only 2.5 inches of rain since Friday. BTW it is in the center of my yard away from any structures that might effect it.
