Do you mow when it's raining?

...and if you do, how do you keep the lawn from looking like crap?
If you can afford to feed it, you can afford to pay me to cut it.

If I am out and it just a sprinkling, I will keep mowing. Once this year I put on my rain suit it was coming down that much. It's raining now and has been for 5-6 hours. I wont go out now, but will hope to in a few hours...either that or do it tomorrow, but I dont want to mow on saturday.

Some times you just have to mow the in the rain. The companies in the state of Washington have to do this all of the time. I just slow down and occasionally have to double mow to spread the clippings out. I raise the deck on the second pass.

Mow WHEN it's raining??

Not unless I wanted to go Mud riddin'. Around here we have thick Gumbo mud.. I prefer to keep the few customers I have, and rutting their yard wouldn't do that..
