    Not much grass to mow this week. We need rain and lots of it here in NE Ohio. This is what happens I buy a new truck and the grass quits growing . Maybe next week I can mow . I have a landscape project to do this week to keep me out of trouble ( I think) LOL

    RLC I hope ya get some of that liquid sunshine. Here in Bama we have been getting those late afternoon thunderstorms. I have not watered my lawn in 3 weeks. I hope this pattern continues. The temp out here has been pretty warm, but the humidity is thick.

    Take care and pray for rain!

    My sprinkler has been on here. It is drying big time and temps are warm. Hopefully next week will give us a little moisture.

    Sounds like a good time to sell some irrigation installs to your better customers RLC.

    Mother Nature...not always kind to this industry. Maybe now is a good time to take a walk around all of your client's properties with a pen and tablet. I think you would be surprised with all of the little things that need done. It's a great way to keep the cash flowing, and they would be glad to know you care enough to point out things that need done. Don't let that new truck sit...Good Luck.

    liVe2, you said it. It's either dry as a bone here, or pounding rains. I have to say though, I would rather see it wet than dry.
