    Where are you located?

    I'm still mowing most of my customers, all though some have backed off on the frequency. Most are 2 weeks now.

    I wish it would just freeze or snow or something! I'm ready for this to be over with allready! :cry:

    Mowing? Hmmm... haven't heard that term in a while....

    There is another word that hasn't been used in a while either.... Rain!!!

    It's just getting down right pitiful around these parts.

    still mowing about every week here.....so much rain though it is making it hard ....hopefully will only have to mow 1-2 more times and then some fall clean ups!! Yeh I often think of the LCO's in southern climates cutting all year long.....up here most of the lawn guys do snow removal in the off season. I suppose its a nice change of pace, but I also think it would be nice not to have all the extra overhead and just keep doing lawn care all year.

    With the drought a lot of the Southern guys are lucky to cut every other week, so it's sort of like they have an off season one week at a time. Indiana was like that for 3 months too, but we've been getting rain lately.

    Depends here, some still need to be cut every week, most are every 2weeks now and there are a couple that have really crappy grass that will get the last cut this week or next week. I can't wait for leaves, something different to do.

    It has looked like its going to rain all day here, but once again, I'm just gettin my hopes up probably....maybe i will make something doing leaves, that would be nice. Maybe it will start raining and stay warm for 6 more months, and i can cut until next seeason!
