    We seem to get really hot weather during the week, and thunderstorms on weekends. Last weekend we had a few tornados. Starting to lightning right now...
    I just hope the tornados stay away. lol. I enjoy watching thunderstorms:rolleyes:

    Its starting to get very dry here. We have had some nightly thunderstorms but they just put it down hard for about 10 minutes. We are around 5 inches below "normal rainfall" for this area already this year. I have already had some customers call with the dreaded "its to dry to mow this week".

    Nah the sprinkler systems are puffing dust and we piss in our radiators on hot days but other than that it's really not bad.

    I only cut one yard this week. Very little rain in a month in a half. Well over 5 inches down for the year. Enough to make you nauseated. 1000's of $ down the drain. 100 degree temps killed what grass was left

    we get rain here just about every other night. its kind of depressing to see how bad some people are suffering from lack of rain and we get the perfect amount to keep grass lush and green. ...oh well. yay illinois

    Not a drop of rain here in weeks. You walk across the lawns and it just crunches. :(

    We have had a very light rain here this evening. Just about a day ago a couple miles north of my town they had about 10 inches of rain in just 6 hours. Luckily we didn't get that cause we have had plenty.
