I dont know about the rest of the country but its been rain free for weeks into months here in nwpa. I dont even plan on mowing next week and there is no rain in the forecast for the next 2 weeks. We do the typical "other things" such as pruning, landscaping etc. but does any one get into decks, cement work, siding etc. I'm even considering looking into dyeing the lawns green (they do make an actual dye for dormant or diseased grasses). But with the crappy winter we had for plowing now this rain free summer it just gets frustrating depending on Mother Nature for $$$$.
