I LUV this time of year .... separates the men from the boys ..... even last week with almost 10" of rain in 6 days we were done before noon Sat ( 1st Sat mow day in 2 years) .... Good Thing we cut grass on Memorial Day

This week we were done by 4pm today .... I've given out at-least 10 estimate in last 3 days picking up 4 .... 1 is a fatty sitting on the River ..... those fools hadn't cut it in 10 days ..... 7 figure home

Hope it rains ALL weekend to keep the weekend warriors on their toes ;->

REMEMBER: If you can hear thunder,
you are close enough to the storm to be
struck by lightning!!!

You guys cutting in the rain must be crazy. Where their is rain their can be lightning. There is always another day to cut grass unless you get struck by lightning.

Arlene is probably just a tune up for us. We are east of her path, the worst place to be.
