And just like that

Went from one week of maintenance and having a free week for installs, to now full time mowing, and the phone's off the hook for landscaping and sod. Seems like it all went from a comfortable slow paced off season to out of control.

Over here it's almost the complete opposite. We're WAITING for the sun to shine!! (For longer than a few hours.)

hurricance season has been a bust the past few years around here. I keep hoping for some storm damage every year, but every storm seems to go to LA and TX. The year we had those 3 hurricanes was nice, but hurricane season of late hasnt produced anything here....

I went to New Orleans the year after Katrina and they were still cleaning debris......
