Rainy Days, what to do

On days that are forecasted rain for most of the day. Do you guys even risk it getting out in it to work? I have a big clean up I was planning on doing today and tomorrow, but I checked the forecast and there a 80% chance of rain all day and tommorow. Im kinda irritated, because as of right now its dry as a bone outside. I should be out there working, but as soon as I get my equipment and head out the door it would start raining...

I work until it gets to wet. Clean ups suck when its wet. But mowing can be done with the right mower until the ground gets to soft.

Ya and the only mower I have that doesnt put tire marks in the ground when its wet is my 21'' push mower. I think I would rather not push mow an acre yard with a push mower, Ive done it before but never again...

On rainy days you can go purchase all the material you need for the rest of the week. Plants, Bushes, Gas, oil, String, Etc.

We have 100% chance till Wed, plus 2morrow is Mardi Gras. Decided to take advantage of the off time and finally get the babies room together. Getting ready to start painting while the wife is at work. Ive got 4 big cleanups lined up but they can wait till after this weather passes. Not in the mood to remulch beds in the mud.

Rainy days are good for doing "owner" stuff.
