    Going out of business because of this rain? (not literally) but just unable to mow at all. its brutal. Great day to cut and BAM cars in for the inspection. Second of all my pup dog is dieing so i figure i take him to the er and im in all afternoon. Weather isn't holding out for tomorrow. rain hard all night into tomorrow. Thank god im becoming an electrician and doingthis on the side. ANd to top it off is my dealer isn't open till tomorrow from the holiday so im screwed for my trimmer. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I mean haha. Life will eat you up if you can't laugh at yourself and certain situations. The harder i work the less money i have :confused:

    After last year's drought Dave, I keep saying to myself I'm not complaining ever again.

    Yup, I'm hearin' ya.........
    Good news is that we are back on the upswing part of the drought/wet cycle for the next few years.
    On average over the past 20-30 years it's been roughly a 6 year cycle up and down.

    I just keep all of my high lifts sharpened and relent that if I sleep today I will be working on the weekend. (AGAIN) I took my sentar sport in for a recall this morning and they gave me a rapid height 52" 19hp for a loaner. They had gators on it and it totally sucked. When it started raining I brought it back to pick up my mower and told the sales guy if he wanted to ever sell that thing get rid of the gators and put some high lifts on it.

    The rain is a challenge but a drought is a down right nightmare. I'll take the rain anytime. If this keeps up it will be a banner year!!!! Have a good one. Matt

    Too much rain is just as hard on the bottom line as too little.As the son of a dairy farmer I have had to deal with weather all my life.Just remember all the good days you could be lookin out the window cooped up in Walmart...
