    Just mowed my biggest account and really should have used a dust mask. It's amazing how a week of 95 degrees can dry up lawns around here. Got in my truck and had 4 customers calling to cancel this week because "its to dry". Here we go again. Its been a good spring but these record highs are already doing the damage. :cry:

    I hear ya on that. I can just see a lot of driving around this week because of very little/ any growth. O well, I still can't believe it's June 9!

    I'm just on the other side of the state line from you, below the mountains and it's the same down here. I only skipped one last week though. Tony

    same here Mike. We've had I think 7 straight days of 90+ degrees and no rain. We do have a pretty decent chance of scattered showers all this week. Last week we had the heat AND pretty stout SW winds. Dried everything up in a hurry. We really haven't recovered from last season either.

    Ya, been dry here for a month. Then 100 degree temps sealed the coffin on the grass. Just like last year and the year before...............Wouldn't have mattered much if it rained with high temps like this.
