Hey What a Great 4th of July. The water came to my boat instead of me taking the boat to water.

I don't want to jinx it, but the last 10 days have been what I would call normal summer days. Rains I can deal with, without getting too far behind. Normal temps. The old normal that is, mid-80's to low-90's. Partly cloudy for part of the day. And night time low temps in the mid-70's instead of 88F at 11pm.

I agree. If the rest of the summer is like the last week, I will be a happy camper.

The countdown has officially started. I was thinking about this the other day. Today was a breeze....nice weather, lawns had grown but not too much except a few.

These are some freaky storms right now. They come out of nowhere and its a lake falls out of the sky. There's a foot of standing water on some streets. Oh well I'm done for today.

Looks like I'm done for the day too. I still had three that needed to be done, but it's a wash.

I am looking today - tomorrow and Friday are looking a little different though. Good news is that the hard rains have not hear in a couple days which has allowed things to dry out in most lawns, at least lawns that do not have any grading/drainage issues.

Another couple inches Thursday after 3 on Tuesday. Looks like another washout for Friday. The mulch kit may have to come off next week.
