    I live in central KY and we really need some rain, all mowing is really slowing down. How is it where you are from?

    I have been on a 10 day schedule but now will move to a bi weekly schedule until we get some rain fall.

    Only lawns I'm cutting every week are irrigated fescue or zoysia. everything else is getting a little bit crispy.

    Dry. Only cutting yards every 2-3 weeks. Some only need it every 4 weeks. Season went from too wet to too dry for me.

    We got around a 1/2" of rain last night. Just gets too dry between rains. We need a good ol tropical storm to blow in. Just like last year, they are going to Texas/Mexico or Northeast, out to sea. I think there would be a drought every year without the tropical stuff
