Eastern Baltimore and Harford here. Strong year, but as with everyone else, the last 6 weeks could have been stronger. Finally caught up on all the side work that needed done, and with showers the last few days, hopefully it'll provide for a strong August leading into fall.

Diffinitely greener. Only problem is now the green is crabgrass and it likes to hold the dew unitl at least 12:00 noon or so. But hey it beats eating dust.

April-so so, grass didnt start until mid month
May- best month I ever had, nonstop cutting
June/July-sucked, everything dried up, didnt make in these two months combine what i made in May
August-great so far, grass is growing fast again due to all the rain

Overall its been a normal year, a drought in june/july/august is always expected, usually april and may making up for it.

Here where I am in Talbot Co. we've had 4.3 inches of good soaking rain for August. 2.6 of that came this past Sat-Mon. and its showing up bigtime.

I had my best cutting day for the summer on Tuesday 8/16. Grass was nice and green, cut good, no dust, and decent temps.

Felt good after I got done not that beat-up feeling you get from the heat and humidity.

Looking to have a good month of August.
