Jason, looks like you're mowing Sunday...


This kind of sucks. Going to be a busy Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for us. Plus it's raining too hard to spread mulch or do other work without making a huge mess. Oh well... the grass needs the water.

It feels like the middle of august out there today...yuck. Is anyone going to attempt cutting at all? I have a feeling that as soon as i get out there its going to rain again. Oh well. I was counting on monday being shot, no work for me that day yesterday turned out to be nice, as i worked all day..today has been wet, with more severe stuff coming. Good luck to everyone on getting caught up....this sucks.

I'm going to try and get three yards of mulch down before the end of the day but that's it. Otherwise Sean and I have been working on trucks and doing misc. stuff.

As soon as we got to and started our largest property it started to rain pretty hard...having watched the radar and the "forecasters" I thought it would be quick and outta there. Not even close. It poured for 1.5 hours and was still looking grim when we finished the place. I told one guy he could split cause he wasn't feeling well. Guy with me went on a customer mtg. When it was done the sun was out and looked nice so we finished all but 2 of our lawns for the day and only got a little wet (I'm still soaked though from the 1st one). Then the sh!$ hit the fan...holy cow was it ever coming down hard out by Dexter/W AA! Was hoping to get 20yds of mulch down today too.

We worked from 8 till 10, went home, then back out from 12 to 4 when it started raining again. Rest of the week should be beautiful. Go Red Wings!
