    Ita been raining here since fri afternoon. Nowhere near as bad as so nh and ma but enough. Been mowing in the rain and on schedule till today, stopped about 10 lawns short, nothing huge though. Should be able to be caught up by Fri. They say the current weather system is finally breaking up a bit, I'm hoping to not have to wear the rain coat tommorrow.

    Today was my first day cutting since last monday and I still won't be able to finsih some of my accounts for a least 4 to 5 days if it stays nice out, my lawns were 4in higher than what I normally cut at. I used my trac-vac today and it worked good unlike in leaves. Why couldn't this rain hold off till atleast the middle of july.

    I was feeling bad for myself for missing a bunch of jobs until I saw what you poor east coasters were getting. I hope you are all well and feel for you. The one good thing is that EVERYONE is behind on their schedule. We had a smaller version of what you have and it lasted for about 6 days. Now add heat and we can mow every customer 4 times a week.
