I know that I have some small landscaping and mulch jobs and a few other things that need to get done, but I have had to push them back because the grass just isn't slowing up. Things that just need to be done in one day, but I can't seem to get a free day. Last weekends rain threw me off that much more. Not that we didn't need the rain.

All I can say is that I am pissed at the local weather guys....all day Monday all I heard was button down.....Tuesday 100% chance of heavy rains. So I call off even attempt to go out Tuesday...figure why pay the payroll to have someone sit in the truck with me and watch wiper blades. By Monday night it was a 90% chance of rain...different...but not enough to warrant a changing my previous choice....by midnight it was 80%.....Tuesday morning...same thing 80%....so I sat at home, waiting and bracing for this HUGE rain......about 8:30 last night I got a light sprinkle.
I hope they have the low of the lower 50's right later this week....that means lower soil temps which means live gets real good.

Yeah, no kidding. I got a lot of my Tuesday stuff done on Monday thinking it was going to be a wash. I was surprised that it still was not raining at sunset. I woke up yesterday looking at the radar, thinking, "I believe these people have lost their minds." There was no way it was going to rain before noon. I went out and mowed three more before taking the mower into the shop for some warranty work. Figured the rain must get here sooner or later. I looked at the radar again and went back out and trimmed hedges.

There was going to be 2-3 inches of rain, thunderstorm and wind. We might have had 2/100th inch of rain, no thunder, and no wind until the front started pushing through.

Basically what happened to you Orlando guys is the opposite of a few weeks ago when you had 3 days of rain or whatever and we were supposed to get tons as well. "80% chance." We got zilch. Well, it rained Monday afternoon here, all day yesterday, and a few hours this AM. Didn't get as many inches as you guys, but the opposite of a few weeks ago.

IMHO this has been one of the Hottest & Humid summer also. Add in the fact we have had 3 winters in a Row with Freezes and our weather pattern sure is changing.
