We are officially in a drought now, with the driest July in 40 years, and the long range forcast only calls for a chance of a few scattered thunderstorms. I'm secure enough to make it through times like this, but I am wondering about some of the fly by night operations. I read a post a while back where someone said when there was a drought in his area, a bunch of the guys had to hang it up and get a real job or just got so discouraged that they through in the towel. Since most the operations in this area are part time, I don't think it is going to matter too much becasue its basically just extra cash and they have their real job to fall back on. The full time out fits are established and the owners usually know how to mange cash flow, plus they usually do some landscape work as well. So basically what I'm asking is has anyone really gone under because of a bad drought?
