Same forecast I heard to guys. Oh well, I agree I think the leaves will be falling early this year just like last year. I was busy as heck in October and November was less money that in years past.

I kinda wish we get an early fall. A few quick big clean ups, then just grass cutting till snow hits, lol. Kinda weird driving around today though, usually there are 9 billion trucks and trailers full of mowers running around, but there were maybe 10 different lco's out and about. I think this drought is gonna weed out the guys who are doing this for quick cash, lowballers, etc. I have been seeing alot of newer trucks, mowers, etc for sale around here lately as well. But keep that rain dance going and pray for that rain on wednesday!!!!

Been raining since about noon. Looks like it is going to stop in a bit and I might try to get back out and finish up the route. Still calling for more rain on Wednesday too.

Well, I did not go back out. Going to finish the route on Wednesday. It was very hot before the storms came in this morning. Before the storms it was 88 and right now it is 73.

Joe, pm sent!!!! Thank you for the offer!!!

JP, I will trade you and work in the rain rather than not work at all!!! Usually when I hear "crunch" come from grass, it is 20 degrees outside and covered in snow/ice. Not 95 degrees and burnt!!! But Im glad at least some of us are getting rain!!!
