    I was mowing today about 25mins from my yard and it starts to rain, so i finish up and made a 10 min lawn turn into 40 mins, i was thinking its gotta be better to just say **** this and go home and start when its dry. The prob is you gotta pay the guys to drive back to that side of town just for the remained or work which was only like 3 lawns ,, ALL RESIDENTIALS.

    WhaT would you guys do?
    I think its a little nuts to cut it in the rain because of quality and time? idk

    one lawn took 30 mins longer than normal time 3 more lawns is 2 hrs extra vs 50 minutes for the drive back today and out again tommarrow if it wont put you to far behind i would call it a day. especially if its been as dry there as its been here.

    I would mow in light rain but if it were to get too steady, I would just call it a day. JMO
