My fellow Floridian's, I am predicting a

Extremely hot summer! High 83 today & terrible humidity and it going to get worse. That heat index hits 100+ & I'll be working half days just to survive.

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

I grew up on the Florida east coast, so don't forget those afternoon seabreeze thunderstorms. Just one more reason to get your work done early

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Yes, I luv the summer rains here. Temp will dramatically drop after a good rain. We kinda have a monsoon rainy season here, Storms on a daily basis. 20% chance last Wed. 5 drops of rain hit my windshield lol. The humidity here is torture. 71% currently as I type. High today is suppose to be 90! Temp tonight 63 degrees.

True the temp drops after monsoon rains, but by then lawns are so wet you can't mow anyway!

Nice weather this week. Monday it rained most of the day all over here. We sure needed a hard soaker. Sunny today.

I would predict all this rain will result in an increase in business ,but that already came true. I love the traditional Florida summers with the afternoon showers.

Yes an increase in business but most can't handle what they have now with this rain. Grass and shrubs growing fast and can't keep up.
