    What drought?! We've had 11 inches of rain here in Omaha, for just the month of May alone. Still busy installing systems, just not as busy as other years.

    When we were in our drought days, I was busier than ever. Couldn't keep up on all the "dry spots". Did a lot of redesigning of systems - move and add heads to get proper head-to-head coverage (not my installs). Used a LOT of the UnderCut series nozzles from Rainbird those years.

    A bit farther south than you, but..........yeah, no drought. Actually a lot wetter than ideal. March was dry and I'm sure that all you need to do is hang in for about 3-4 more weeks and we will know all about drought again.

    We are in a sever drought right now (North Alabama). We are booked for new installs for 4 weeks straight doing repairs inbetween installs. I hope this winter my boss will buy me a bigger truck.....1 ton dually long wheel base. I cant keep enough parts on the truck. This past month has been rough. We have hade sevral calls where people have not ran there system in years. Seems like you fix one thing and something else is wrong. :hammerhead:

    We are insane in Florida with the drought. Shallow wells are drying up on top of everything else.

    My well drillers are busier then I am.
