It is going to be a Great Week

It has been raining for over 24 hours. Already had 6 inches of rain and more coming in with Strong Storms. Yard clean ups will be great this week, hope my mowers don't get stuck while cutting yards.

Just heard that our largest commercial account is under water--business may struggle for a while. Lawn care may be the least of their problems. PROBABLY NOT GOING TO BE SO GREAT FOR SOME OF US!!!

I am surrounded by water on 3 sides lol. Spent 1000 dollars yesterday on maintenance for the truck and water is touching the rims as we speak. What is everyone's game plan? I just wanna get out and do what I can for people IF this ever stops. Forget cutting grass these are my neighbors. I dont know if i should post on craigslsit or what

We have had over 11 inches of rain since yesterday. One of the two streets into our house is washed away, and the other is close to washing away. Might not even be able to get out once it dries up.

I first read this and thought what a positive approach to the week, and then I read it. Prayers go out to those in need!

I think for a few days it may be tough to have a plan of action--as soon as I can get there after the water goes down, I'm going to my commercial business that's flooded, with trailer, shovels, brooms, bags, and help do what I can do!!! It's important to get them back in business ASAP. We'll take it one step at a time.

In the Middle Tennessee Area, we are in serious trouble. We just heard that the National Guard is being called in to help rescue people. All we can do is stay out of the EMS Crews way and pray everyone remains safe.

I guess I will just start there as well and check on my residentials after that I can. I have a customer in Antioch(elderly couple) i am really worried about. Husband(82) was supposed to have surgery tommorrow! I am sure on the way there will be plenty of people who could use a hand. If only i would have bought that winch...... waters are starting to come down I can see the hoods of cars on my street again. idk if i should drain the fluids n the truck or not......
