Downpour in Edgewood.
Thank god for big trees and big porches.

After the rain started working it's way through the tree canopy I moved to the front porch for shelter where I watched as my truck sat across the street - window down an inch. That ain't gonna be good.

Hum dee dum dee dum...

Hope it slows down soon.

Wow. This porch is bigger than my living room, dining room, and kitchen combined.

Hum dee dum...

Man, I gotta pee really bad.

If it makes you feel any better, that storm is just arriving here...

What made me feel better was peeing in a Gatorade bottle while making it look like I was getting something from the back of my extended cab truck.

On Tuesday I ran over the bloated rotting carcass of an adult rabbit with my 48 walkbehind. That definitely sucked. There was fur and chunks of bone/meat everywhere. Those Oregon G5's to wonders to small woodland creatures. But they released a stank that even a drum of fabreeze couldn't touch...

Downpour here about 3:30, but worked through it. I had started mowing a large property. I shut down the mower, pulled out the trimmer and did the trimming for 25 minutes, then resumed mowing on the sparse areas.

I had another brief drizzle about 6:00, but not enough to stop any work.

Strange day: 12:30 to 7:45. I am still a couple of properties behind in schedule. Tomorrow looks favorable, albeit hot and humid with cloud cover.

Yea, ... the rain is really getting old.

I know this question could fit in a different category but I am looking for PA. rules.
If I purchase weed killer from Home Depot/Lowes and I spray it for FREE at my nicer accounts is this ok/legal in this area? I know in Tx you need a license to CHARGE and to buy the good stuff. But if I sprayed over the counter chemicals and did not charge OR advertise this it was legal. Customers always liked getting the little freebies like this. (I only did this for customers I liked and who payed well and on time)
Any advice would be nice.

You can buy most chemicals, even commercial agents, without a license. Some people will give you different answers to that question. I, for one, would advise against spraying sans license, even for free.

You can spray organic chemicals without a license. Anything other than organic and you could be fined.
