I'm with you! Seems that I can't get anything done. A normally 6-7 hour job took me 2 days to get completed. The mulch is heavy and my truck doesn't like that. Have a few lawn customers that have yet to have their first cut.... the ground is saturated and I would sink if I even attempted a cut.

Oh well, at least I'm not going to complain...... yet!

Can we take a "rain check" for all of this rain and bring it back in July? Thanks, sincerely, every landscaper in MI

I'm having a bad feeling about the entire year.

Turn it back to snow so we can plow it.

That's what's giving me a bad feeling. Weather occurs in cycles. Just like the climate.

Yep. The almanac was spot on for winter. It's calling for a hot and wet summer...

The ice just melted off Lake MI, still 20% on Lake Superior; I have my doubts about the hot part.
