    I lived there for about a year. But saving up enough money for rent would take a while, probably. I've seen plenty of lawns you could do with a 21" to get started, and I think the winter is even shorter than here.

    I hear you. We have PLENTY of summer left here too. In fact I think our summer is just getting started. But it looks like the good man above is blessing you guys. We are in terrible shape. Here's a picture I snapped in the neighborhood I work in, this is a picture of the park. Everything from churches, to many commercials, and a lot of residentials are looking pretty bad right now. The dry hot weather is starting to take it's toll and might slow down the summer early for some of us. I went to South Austin other day and it was bad, but didn't look as bad as we are looking over here. I think they might have got a bit more rain than us, not to mention we sit on nothing but limestone, so our soils are poor and don't retain any water, and dry out pretty quickly.

    I guess it's just not meant to be. Two days in a row we had a gigantic storm within miles of us, heading the same exact direction as us. First time it broke up, and the second time it just bounced right over us I guess. That or the weather man gets paid 90k to tell lies.

    Same thing happened here for the most part. Some areas saw about 2 inches, while my house barely got wet. Which is alright. I'd rather my clients get the rain than me. I know I'll water my own lawn...
