    Im sure everyone is getting rain today, hope no one is in any danger. Here in western Md. today is the first rain day i had off since may. We started this morning and still now at 9:00 pm a nice steady rain. Maybe some of the yards i installed earlier will come around and make me look good. Mother nature can sure make us look like heroes or goats.

    we dont know what green grass actually looks like around here any more. We were supposed to be in the 5-10" window but i think the mountains broke it up. The last 2 months i was talking to 2 guys who owns lawn care business said they started cutting fire wood.
