    Well just these first couple days of 90 plus temps has landed me 2 new accounts. Got 2 calls today saying that their lawn guy called them and said he couldnt handle this work anymore and thanked them for being good customers. Well I love this heat, what are the rest of you guys noticing? Some folks are just week :laugh:

    I've been starting at dawn, done by 2:00 before the heat of the day sets in. I installed 19 yds. of mulch this last week plus my mowing schedule. I could have planned that better.

    You have to remember that people have different constitutions. What feels hot to you may be extremely hot to someone else. A lot of it has to do with your diet also. Raw fruits and vegetables really help keep you cool.
    I enjoy the heat. I appreciate it. I am glad it is not winter. Anything above 50degrees is good to me. Ive been to places where its 130. Atleast it doesn't get so hot here.
