Rain, never happens when you need it.

Well looks like what would have been our first full week of cutting is going down the drain sort to speak. Rain forecast for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Great Thurs, and Friday are going to stink. Everthing just started really needing mowed about Thursday this past week. So we know how long its going to be next week. Rain coat might be in order. Anyone else having weather issues?

Im so far behind because of rain I dont know what direction to go in this week. Every yard I rode by and looked at today is still to boggy to mow. Now in a couple of months Ill be begging for it.

It's kinda raining cloudy and light in places here today. Kept us from doing a job though as we fear it will get stronger and wash the Atrimec away.

We can't complain really it is the first time rain has kept us from working in weeks and really who wants to work on Sunday anyway....

We are actually dying for rain up here in Michigan. Been a lot of brush fires in the region the last 7-10 days. No rain at least through next Saturday that I saw on the extended forecast last night. Had some light rain last week and nothing since. Yards are greening up but not really getting long in my neck of the woods so mowing is not really needed yet. Could use a little rain to make things pop a little more.

I have to agree with Allen. Most of last year seemed to happen just like he said for me. It was great... I will take sunny and 90 all week long if it will rain all day Saturday. I like to paly golf on Sundays after it has rained.
