    it is getting cutting time here and it is raining so much it will be several days before I can do anything. this sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a full week next week, but if it rains through the weekend, i won't be able to do much, I have 15000 flyers going out next wednesday, so I will certainly be behind.

    If you don't like rain, then you're in the wrong business..Rain can make it hard sometimes to stay caught up but without it, we're out of business...Derrick

    I know the feeling Midsouth, just the other way around. All we have down here is brown, dead yards. With watering restrictions so tight I hope that something gives here in Florida. We have not had a good rain in over 2 months. I don't want this summer to end up like last summer. Some of my yards with sprinkler systems even died. The government down here is so messed up, they only let you water once a week unless you sign up to their reclaimed watering system(highly treated sewage) and then you can water 24 hours a day if you want(some people do.) The only downside is you have to get everyone in the neighborhood sign a petition saying they will pay the almost $700 to hook-up to this crap(no pun intended.) Everyone would rather let their yards die so they don't have to pay for one of the many low-ballers around here to scalp it. Oh well, things will hopefully change soon. By the way good luck with all of that rain.
