    I was just looking at some of my yards today and man they are crispy looking.

    We sure could use some rain so I can get back to work.

    If it keeps up like this I'm gonna be mowing like once an month.

    Man I'm getting bored here, I suppose the rest of you Florida boys know what I mean.

    Its a good thing I bill year round, otherwise I'd be broke as a joke these days.

    We are finally getting some much needed rain. We are about 20" in the hole. Had about 2.5" this month. All good soaking rains, with more in the forecast.

    Huummm, I am getting busier as week progressing due to newer subdivisions popping up like mushroom. St. Augustine is getting up like mad, so from April forth I will be exhausted for sure
    :weightlifter: :weightlifter:

    I have seen lots of Bahia lots burning up, but not much on St. Augustine cause homeowners water them accordingly.

    Gonna be dry next 45 days .... than we get into "the season" ..... say we expect less storms than last summer ....but more than usual .... isn't neat how the weather people talk ....it's like an insurance or banker

    "We expect less activity than last summer ..... BUT more than what is the norm"

    Last season was the worst in recorded history ..... those poor soul in the Gulf area got messed up .... n year before we got it bad ....
