I have sideboards for the trailer so that will get me 16 ft out but it is probably 30 ft out to the road. My brother has a four wheel drive 4-wheeler but i don't thing that would get it out of that mud.

If I did that I would be killed!! I''ll go find some crazy college students that would be more than happy to do that for me. Luckly the trailer isn't loaded! I'll have to try to get some pictures if I do get it out.

What's up guys? Computer has been getting repaired and it will be going back on Thursday too. Still not right. We had about 2 to 3 inches of rain depending on where you live around here. Actually got out this afternoon to get some done. Things will be growing good next week that is for sure.

I went up to Northern Indiana yesterday to pick up a used mower and man they actually have grass up there!! LOL I haven't seen grass that green since spring... We were supposed to get severe weather, but once again it went right around us. We barely got a sprinkle large enough to cover the street, as usual. It just doesn't seem to rain east of Cincinnati anymore.

The golf courses around here have nearly pumped the ponds dry to keep the grass going. If we don't get rain soon they will be empty for sure...

Got woke up this morning about 5 am with a huge clap of thunder. Still raining right now. I am hoping to get out this afternoon to do some more yards. They were not even calling for this last night. I watched the weather this morning and they said this was a surprise. Well, I hope they screw up like this in the up coming winter.

We are finally get our green grass back up here. A lot of yards are going to need some repair that is for sure. I might just have to rent a aerator to perform the service for my customers.

I wish some of it would of went south for you, and everyone else! There are a lot of people pumping their basements around here!

BTW, I got my trailer out today, wasn't bad at all. I used the 4-wheeler, put some boards down, and put it in 4-wheel drive and just went as fast as I could.
