The lack of rain has finally caught up to me. It has been business as usual to this point, but I will start skipping a few this week. I will scrap the few I do on Monday and roll them into Tuesday. Instead of mowing 4 days a week, I will do 3 days for the next couple of months.

Yep. Seems like two each day aren't getting cut now.

Fortunately a few are asking for other work that helps offset it, but coming home early each day is getting old.

Still working normal hours for now...well, a little earlier...but we're splitting time between trimming shrubs and partial cutting accounts.

Ooh boy, I may break $130 today.

Sheesh. By next week, there won't be anything left to cut.


Keep hydrated out there. Less competition is good, but don't wanna see anyone dropping in the heat.

I'm home already.
I cut 4 and skipped 4.

I feel drained. The heat has never bothered me before.

Everybody still standing?

Yesterday, when I got home the display said 96. Today, at 5:00, it was 98. The breeze has been good the past couple of days. And, the humidity wasn't too bad this afternoon. I did better than I expected.

Where is the person who was complaining a few weeks ago about heavy green grass clumping? We need to beat the person severely about the head and shoulders with a big stick!

Well, ... not really. Will we ever see a heavy stream of clippings coming out the discharge chute again? Oh, to see green grass clippings streaming from the chute, and even making windrows or clumps? What a great sight that would be!
