    Ok, I was just wanting to see if anyone was working if possible. I have 60 yards today. I guess not to many as others but enough. Also has anyone mowed on Sunday's? Do people get upset or will they be just glad to get there lawn mowed.

    With 3 guys you should be able to knock that out by tomorrow afternoon if we don't get too much rain this afternoon! I would try to not make a habit of it but with the rain this week I think they may understand that you are just trying to get caught up if you did have some leftover for Sunday. Don't start to early and they should be allright.

    Thanks, Jason. Yeah, I am not working today. I did that yesterday morning and got either drizzle or rained on for a little over 2 hours. It was just nasty. Today it is super muddy and wet and I would rather have 60 decent looking yards or better than wet ugly stained concrete yards. With 3 guys we only seem to get about 23 done in about an 8 hour period. With 10 hours I guess we could do more. So, I guess I will hit the ground running on Saturday and work 10 hours and and then another 10 on Sunday. Then we have rain forecasted for what Tuesday and Wednesday now?

    By the way anyone notice that the forecast have not been that accurate at all and one station varies from another. Not to knock but man they day they say it is going to rain I don't go out and miss out on a whole day and they day they don't say it will rain till late I get hit early in the morning.

    I finally just put the laptop in the truck and just watched the radar myself.

    Ok, experts what to do here. Man what a lot of rain. I stayed home all day today. Now it's work tomorrow or not? If it does dry up at all it will just be a messy muddy day tomorrow I am guessing. If I do mow are customers going to be upset with the green tracks on there concrete, lines in the yard, and divits?

    I seriously am just thinking screw it I am behind this much why not just wait till Monday and get it done.

    What do ya think?

    I have 4 lawns from Thursday's schedule that I couldn't get done today. I am going to get them taken care of tomorrow. If there was more than that, I would probably just wait on Monday and just push the whole schedule back. I can't justify only jacking up 4 schedules. I am watching it rain outside from my sunroom window right now. I will probably wait until 9 or so tomorrow morning and get after it. I got 4 done today in between rainstorms.

    Does anyone know of a website for Tarrant County that lists lot sizes in square feet. I have been trying to use the Tarrant County Appraisal District site but it hardly ever lists the lot size in square feet for the addresses I am plugging in. Thanks for any help.
