Crazy weather turnaround from last year

I sit here typing as it is pouring outside. Again. Flash flood warnings everywhere. Not sure what work I can even get done tomorrow.

What a stark contrast to last year, way early spring, went dry in May and never really rained again until later fall.

Seems like you either get way too much rain, or way too little.

The high today in Cincy is 91! Then it's going to rain the next 3 days. These might be the end times.

I'd welcome a day or two of rain. We were getting rain 4 out of 7 days a month and a half or so ago, but now we haven't had rain for about a month. The grass is getting that blue/grey color and when you walk across it you can see you foot prints clearly where the grass was flattened out in them. We are supposed to finally get some rain later in the week, but the percentage chance is relatively low. Looks like a repeat of last summer to me right now.

I'm glad I have a Scag. It does a good job cutting when the grass is wet.
