    No rain for over two weeks now and 100 degree temps to boot. If they don't have irrigation systems we don't cut. Man now there starting to talk about watering restrictions. I'ts just that time of year here in Texas. Most of the scrubs will start to say goodbye now!:D

    Have been having the same problem here until this week. Lawns are starting to come back. Had 3" of rain Wednesday and 1.1" on Saturday. It came down to fast both days to really soak in, but helped.

    All the lawns are pretty much dried up here too. Had to skip a week, so I didn't seem to be ripping the customer off. :)
