Yea the grass just loves it, for the most part, don't fret it the dry spell is coming, which is just as bad.

We have had 28 inches for the year and our normal is only 16 inches to this point in the year. Had over 10 in the month of May and about 7 or 8 in April. Still had a customer tell me they don't understand why the grass can grow so fast as it didn't even rain this past week. I tried to explain that it had rain about 5 inches the week before and there is still a lot of moisture in the ground. So people just cant figure that out.

Can't find it right now, but we had 11" in April, not quite so much in May. Or June.

Making up for last year.

Similar here in GA. We had 4" of rain last wednesday alone. I had to shift my wednesday cuts to thursday. I was able to get a stack of blades sharpened on wednesday. It rained friday afternoon. I had to shift my friday cuts to Saturday. Rained on and off all day yesterday. It's supposed to rain today too off and on all day. I'm gonna use today to clean & lube up all of my equipment and clean my screened porch at my house.
