did the drought change your business model or not ? how many are considering contracts for 08 ? I am diversified with lawn and powerwashing services. My wife and I just switched gears and did more powerwashing . Having survived other droughts over 16 years through diversification I just wonder how the mowing only model works for some. I have seen some guys get regular jobs in drought years. I like to keep the equipment paid for and save money for replacement equipment and repairs. In drought years I just put ahold on purchases and repair the stuff I got.
