rain

Yes I am glad we are getting it but it seems like i can never catch up on shrubs . It seems like every day we are getting rain . Even hard to stay on top of the weeds. I wish it would only rain at night. I hate cutting wet grass and it does not have time to dry out. Really been a rough Summer

The rain coming at all times of the day has been a pain in the neck, but the high temps in my area have been about 6 or 7 degrees cooler than last year. Nice breeze the last few days too.

Summer is on the way out is the way I like to think of it. I must say the little storms that have been popping up all over have been a pain. My redwings have a serious odor to them from being wet all the time...and although they are less than a year old they may need to be retired soon if the smell continues to worsen.

Set them out in the sun and cook the funk out of them on a day off. Then toss in some baking soda before you put them on. I'll switch to rubber boots if it's too wet.

Not going to complain about the rain. It may cause a few problems, but it beats the blazing heat.

Quite frankly we are halfway done with summer and it has been zipping by. August is the last hellish month imo and it starts getting better from there.

Consider buying a Peet boot dryer or similiar. Less than $40. It will be the best money you'll ever spent.
