    Now, I'm not trying to brag or anything, but we've had almost an inch of rain a day here in Rensselaer since Sat. night. :D And the good thing is that it has mainly been coming after 6 p.m., so it has time to dry out for the next day, that is except for today. Just trying to see where the rest of you are at on this whole rain situation.

    Rained all day. Most days lately we'll cut with temps in the upper 90's with high humidity (feels like 110), and get those afternoon showers that dump 1/2 to 2 inches of rain in half an hour. It'll stop, dry up and feel twice as hot. We have plenty water and grass is growing like crazy. At times like these it is hard to believe that the grass will stop growing come winter time and we'll be wishing for something to cut.

    I was able to mow until 2:00 PM yesterday before it droped an inch on me. I only mowed until 1:00 today and we got another 3/4 inch. I am glad to see it. It is going to go good with all of that fertilizer I put down last week.

    It's been so wet here that the lawns are swamps. I havn't cut a full lawn in a while due to excessive rain. I just cut as much as I can and go on to the next one. I'm not going to walk around in nasty, stagnet, mosquito infested water. Now I'm hearing that the west nile virus may be heading our way.
