rain..

Been a perfect storm this year in the treasure coast...raining all night so things are soaked in the am...things are usually workable and yards dry enough by 9am until noon when it pours again for the rest of the afternoon and evening... Trying to fit 8+ hours of work in 3 hours of dryness...got 11 inches for June here and gotta be better than that pace for July... Insanity... Customers will have to understand...

Stays wet from rain and dew here we cut it have to can't wait till noon or 1 when it drys sometimes it still wet with dew on bi-weeklys.

Mow in rain or whatever got to stay caught up and get things done. Use to have to skip yards when I was using my gravely as full time mower it would tear some up if they were wet, new deere has yet to make a mark even mowing in rain and cutting the ditches, don't know if it is the overall design plus the tires or what but can't complain.
