    well..bad news here for me. The drought has began two months early here. After only one good solid week of mowing, I am already rescheduling because of the dust bowls.

    Anybody else has noticed this as well???:blob2:

    Same thing here in N.E. Ohio!!! I have never seen it this dry in April ??? I am usually getting stuck 2 or 3 times a day, but this year I'm eating dust. :dizzy: This is not a good sign. :( ED

    Oh, I forgot to add, some of my lawns are showing drought stress. The only good thing about this is not having to do much double cutting. ED

    We are still in the drought out here, the last month or so has been quite wet. Hoping its the beginning to the end of the drought.
