    The season never stops. You go from mowing weekly April-October to mowing bi-weekly November-March. From June to October you get rained on every day with lots of lightning for added fun....

    You will not get the money people talk about getting up there. For every 5 people it seems that 3 cut grass.

    Good Luck the heat is just about on us.
