    I am ready for the new season. I have a new trailler and ztr. My spring clean ups are done now I need rain. I wish some of the excess rain, in the south, could head up this way.

    You guys can send it all to NJ!!! We need 10" (of rain) by end of April to unload the evil mandatory drought restrictions in our region. It has been raining as normal for this time of year the past 2 weeks - but we need a lot more. Hoss - we'd gladly like to use a boat in our back yards for a few days:cool:

    We got rain dumped on us a couple days ago, it flooded out several roads and shut down the water filtration plant in a nearby town, the creeks got higher than they'd been in years. We could still use more!
    Talk about a mess, we had to dig up a water line today, MUD!

    I wish there was some way to transfer this moisture. We have had about 4" since since Octomber. We have some warm weather but no rain. The grass is not growing. Last year, I had already been mowing for two weeks, before now.
