    I see a lot of yellow leaves in the trees and a too many on the ground for this time of year.

    Results of the drought? Are we going to get a big drop early?

    It's really wet here. Been raining everyday. A lot.
    BUT the Crepe Myrtles are dropping leaves as well as some maples that I see while out working.
    The slow season won't be here too soon for me!
    Really wish some of you people dealing with drought conditions were getting some of this rain.
    I'm tired of it.

    I was going to post the same thing on here just now! Mowed my last lawn today and a few trees had dropped a lot already. Seemed to be stress induced, because they were dropping while green and slightly wilted, a few yellows though. I hope its early this year, I could use a little break from mowing dormant grass... :)

    Trees here are droping also. I think I am going to have to start leaf removal early. I ahve a few accounts i have done once a month or less. I am lucky though, I am a part timer at this and all my equipment is paid for. My prayers are with you full time guys.

    Trees are dropping here already. Man i need my trac vac already. Summer season sucked here. No rain water ban and things are just not going my way. O well trying to make up for it with leaf work. We'll see.
