We're real dry here too. We had less than 1/10th of an inch of rain in the last 6 weeks. My customers lawns that dont have irrigation are dying out quickly.

Very dry here, we have had no rain this month yet. And it's almost over. We are 4" below norm already.

Spring cleanups are so easy cause there really was not much of any winter... maybe 8 to 10 plows wich is nothing for northern new york... just hope we get some rain so the grass will grow....

I'm not washing and waxing both cars, the truck and the trailer just so it rains again
because I did it last year and now it's someone else's turn.

Yes, we are dry as a bone here in CT. The spring cleanups have been moderately easy, except for the DUST!!

Since we had a "dry" winter and this spring is so dry, I have a feeling that this summer will be WET. I had a customer (who has passed away) who was a "country girl"... grew up on a farm, hunted and fished for food (not pleasure), grew the most incredible vegetable gardens. Anyway, she always said that Nature always makes up, meaning if one season is dry, the next will be wet. She was very accurate!

So, we'll see!

I am getting paranoid about brush fires. I have a feeling we will start having some soon. And they always occur right when I am in the middle of a job, and take a couple hours to put out.
