Send some of that wet stuff south. We're having a drought in the south and southeast.

We need the rain man. Ground is hard. Farmers need it. Guys with wells need it. Better to have too much, short of a flood, then not enough.

im right there with you, this has been the worst year since ive started (8 years) in resi mowing for rain, for god sakes its the middle of june already

ive lost almost half my lawns (down to 68 from 99) because i cant keep on a 7 day schedule, even with an extra machine and extra guy...people dont care and fert and fert, so theyre growing 10 inches a week

im not making any $$ ... so now theyres more and more new guys in my areas just starting up...taking care of 10 or 12 lawns which is what you need to be able to stay on a 7 day cycle it seems...
