Yea same here they did 5 houses on my street when the grass was snow covered! Holy hel.l did it rain last night!! Can't believe people are cutting today. Seen some no name companies but was suprised to see Three C's out mowing. At least its windy out so its drying up some of the puddles hoping to be able to do some cleanups tommorow!!

LOl yep next week's forecast doesn't look good at all! I'm yelling you guys, things are going to be so wet and soggy that you'll be lucky to be able to do lawns during the first week of May. On the good side, at least it's been cold up to now so that the lawns haven't gotten away from us. Next will change that.
On the bright side, this is the kinda stuff that the hacks really screw up in. Scheduling problems and tearing up lawns in wet conditions (before the season even starts) is never good. It's a prime time for the vets to show their experience and pick up lots of new customers! Life gives you lemons? Whattya do? Right?!?

Well guys I am cusping on my 29yr of life. Tomorrow is my bday and I think I might do some work in the morning then take the rest off. I think I might go mushroom hunting in the afternoon and maybe hit some bluegill beds afterwards. Then grill some steaks for dinner and maybe sautee morels with them(if we find any). Hope your day will go as good as mine!
