    Well I was praying for rain awhile back. In the last month we have gotten plenty of it here in SC. Over 6" at one time one night. I have been rained on just about everyday this week. I love it. August and September have to be very big months to make up for the loses so far. The way its going sofar I should be able make up for some lost time. Big storm out there now. Hows the weather everywhere else?

    Charles,
    I'm in East Tennessee, and we have been getting some pretty good rain here for the past few weeks. Before that, it was hot and dry and the yards were starting to burn. I just finished up a customer's yard about 30 min ago, and about 10 min after i blew off the driveway and porch, here came the rains. It's still sprinkling out now.
    The yards have been really thick and growing fast, good for business! Luckily on the days we've had rain, they haven't been total washouts for the day. So mowing isn't a problem if you give the grass a little time to dry out.

    Tim :)

    Good to hear your dry conditions have been rained on Charles.

    Im thinking the conditions in SC are opposite of here in MN. I have skipped several of my customers this week from dry conditions. It is nice to have a break. First full weekend off this season for me, and Im spending my time catching up here at LawnSite.

    We have been unable to cut much this week but hope to get started next week. Saturday has been the first day with out a major rain for awhile in Eastern, NC.
    I was out checking lawns today sinking in a couple of inches just walking, in some of them.
