It looks like we could be rained out until Wednesday or later. This slow moving storm will not let up on the rain. My lawn is soaked and very soggy. I guess it going to be another long wet week. Stay dry if you can.

This is going to delay everything this week. I can not wait to hear from all the customers. There is cutting in the rain but at this point the lawns are just soup so I simply do not see how it will be possible for a bit.

If we can get a few breaks from the rain I might think about mowing. But it is just to wet now. The last few weeks have made the grass super thick and tall between mowings. I know I am cutting more than 1/3 of an inch off between cuttings. I just slow it down a bit to make sure it looks nice and don't have any stragglers. Heck after 3 days most propertys could use cuttings again. Especially those bahia stalks that shoot up a few days later.

Returned from San Antonio today. Things are dry but nothing like ths time last year. Landed at TPA 2:15 pm, needless to say the passengers gave a rousing round of applause for a safe flight and landing. That being said we
did get a head start on the Hurricane season, and every season will be different. Just relax and wait till things dry up just a bit. If anyone's accounts
have a problem with Mother nature exercising her rights. That just too bad.

We got ahead on mowing. Already have a dozen calls for storm cleanup. Multiple tornados tearing through st pete. Going to wish I had a dump trailer.
