    Anyone besides me in the northeast think its really dry and been really dry.. sort of has my wondering if this summer in the northeast will be like last year above average temps and no rain.. just seems way to dry for this early in the season and this wind everyday with 50 degree temps is just sucking the ground dry... any thoughts anyone out there????

    We're real dry here too. We had less than 1/10th of an inch of rain in the last 6 weeks. My customers lawns that dont have irrigation are dying out quickly.

    Spring cleanups are so easy cause there really was not much of any winter... maybe 8 to 10 plows wich is nothing for northern new york... just hope we get some rain so the grass will grow....

    I'm not washing and waxing both cars, the truck and the trailer just so it rains again
    because I did it last year and now it's someone else's turn.

    I sure HOPE this season isn't as dry as last B/C I need to make some $$$ this year. Spent a ton of Money last year reinvesting into the Business. Now it's time to reap the rewards....Sure would hate to wait for another year to make some $$$.

    Yes, we are dry as a bone here in CT. The spring cleanups have been moderately easy, except for the DUST!!

    Since we had a "dry" winter and this spring is so dry, I have a feeling that this summer will be WET. I had a customer (who has passed away) who was a "country girl"... grew up on a farm, hunted and fished for food (not pleasure), grew the most incredible vegetable gardens. Anyway, she always said that Nature always makes up, meaning if one season is dry, the next will be wet. She was very accurate!

    So, we'll see!

    I am getting paranoid about brush fires. I have a feeling we will start having some soon. And they always occur right when I am in the middle of a job, and take a couple hours to put out.
