The way it looks, I will be needing some of those too. Did not even get out today. Rain till about noon on Weds then Thursday is to be nice. Then rain Friday and Saturday. Some might not get mowed this week. The yards just can't handle to much more of this. But, I will do what I can to get them done.

I'm in the same boat. (Maybe I could use a boat ). We'll see how tomorrow goes.

I hope Friday and Saturday aren't total washouts, I got way to much to get done to be backed up this early.

Sure as heck doesn't look good. Been following it on Skyeye and looking at the models and well, it doesn't look pretty. I much rather be backed up then it being dry . I just hope we continue to get rain all season.

You're right, JP, better wet than dry. Hopefully we don't go one extreme to the other.
