    What do you do when all the yards you are cutting are very wet, need cutting and the forecast predicts rain for the next few days? I usually just take it like a man and cut in the rain if the yards need it.

    Thats about all you can do in a situation like that. We cut soaking wet if we have to but we don't get out and actually cut in the rain.

    Don't hate rain ...the alternative (drought) is gloomy. :)

    We mow unless is reallly soaked,,,,cause as you said you can not wait 4 or 5 days for a dry day.

    I love rain because it makes the grass grow. Remember what happened 2 to 3 summers ago in July when there was no rain.

    80% chance of rain with amounts up to 2".

    Tomorrow morning I am going to sleep in.

    Actually eat breakfast and lunch.

    Like stated before, rain is good at times... rain means the grass will be spurting especially if you put some fert. down and we get some sunny days after this rain.
