I started cutting after school today, and I was about 1/2 way finished cutting my first account on my route when a wall of water fell from the sky. One minute it was blue skies, then the next the sky let loose with the most rain that I have ever seen fall in 30 minutes. The kicker is that www.weather.com said there was a 0% chance of rain in my area. Well, clearly they were wrong. All of my stuff started fine even after being totally soaked with rain. I was using my Toro Proline belt drive, and surprisingly the belts did not really slip at all even though they were really wet. It did not even clump at all. Then as fast as it blew in, it was gone. I will have to cut the rest of my accounts on today's route tommorow, because there were rivers and large puddles in all of the lawns- way too wet to cut. I dried and cleaned everything off and it is nice and dry up in the shed. Just had to vent a little after getting totally soaked.
