Can't believe companies are cutting today. My rain gauge said 1.5" yesterday and it's been raining for about an hr now.

I agree.

And tough crap if it's not good for the lawns! I have money to make!

Too bad if it makes them look like crap! Not my problem.

Something tells me you haven't been doing this for very long.
