    It has rained here at least once per day or night since last Thursday. It is currently raining now. Put on the gator blades and keep cutting

    Been cutting every day, the part that got me was the snow, a little insult to injury.

    Grassmanvt.... better hook back up your plow!!! Grass must be geting long with all the rain and your mowers must be dirty and muddy!!! Temps are cool down here to 50s to 60s but usually just been getting afternoon rain. You far behind schedule this week???

    A little behind but miraculously, not too bad. Pooring out there as I type this. Mowers are filthy and caked with mud and grass.The weekly scrub down is gonna suck. So far, both guys have got a mower stuck this week.

    similar to last year, probably somewhere around 65-70 stops, unit/ building wise, probaly closer to 100. We do everything from tiny residences to cemetaries, a hospital, apartment buildings, and a condo asscociation. With a little better/more consistent help this year I might even add a few more when the weather clears. Got a few estimates to do and just took back one building, whether I wanted to or not. Not a big deal though.

    We cut in the rain today (not pouring) and though it was my first time in the rain we were fine. Kept the dust down though I still got very dirty, my hands were green.
