Been 98+ for the past 2weeks, grass is still growing like crazy due to the extremly high humidity at nite. This usually when the hacks start to quit. $$$$$$

It's 101 right now and feels like you're standing in a dryer. Irrigation holding up the lawn pretty well but those without are suffering badly. I sure hate it for you full timers out there not getting their cuts in. That can be hard on the pocketbook for sure. I only have 21 yards but work a full time job at 50+ hours a week. I too have already been skipping cuts due to lack of growth/rain. Last one was finished up by 8:30 this moring after 3rd shift work. It was still hot but had to get it done. I think I will enjoy the air condition and pool over the weekend and pray for a T-Storm. Looks like the heat may hang around awhile being the whole country is experiencing the same temps. Good luck to all you guys/gals out there and be sure to drink plenty of water.

It was 100 here today. Sucks, no rain either lawns are getting really brown. It's supposed to do this in august, not late June, or early July! This season has really sucked.
There's a ton of money out here....thank god. It's hard to fail in this biz here unless you're a bum or an idiot.

Mine fluctuated between 106 and 110 around 2 pm today. Parked in the shade of an oak tree.
I took a picture.
