Oooo. More rain.

Is it me, or has it rained in NJ every Thursday for the last 2 months. Seems like every week it rains at least 2". Is this cr@p driving anybody else nuts?

Send some to NE Texas. We are way behind on rainfall. Some lakes are up to 8 feet low!

i can't stand it, when i do have the time to schedule a cleanup, it always rains, and this time of year, the lawn won't dry up, it'll just freeze.

I called the sod farm yesterday because I have 3 small sod jobs coming in the next 2 weeks. they were only able to cut yesterday & the day before in the last 2 weeks. I know a month ago, they had to bring the pallets out of the fields to the trucks because their tractor trailers were getting stuck in the fields. They told me they've received about 35" of rain out there since the end of August - that's sick!

I think the average in NJ for the entire year is like 36 or 38 inches.
