    it's only early june and everything is brown.

    i typically have a busy day tomorrow but they are not growing.


    there is no rain in the forecast for like 4 more days. THIS IS NOT GOOD.


    any other Minnesotans feeling the pain?????

    Indiana here but we havent had rain in a few weeks and that wasnt even a good rain. We need a solid week of rain. I would be happy to take off for a week and let everything come back to life. Mowing is coming to a dead halt here. Everything is brown. Sucks!

    we got lots of small hail but in the town next to me this is what they saw.

    You must be near the Twin Cities too.... I'm only mowing a neighbors lawn this year with her new zero turn. I collect clippings for her garden to use to keep out weeds. The lawn has been so thin this year that its hard to get enough clippings on a 3 acre lawn. Do you remember last summer? I mowed almost nothing during the month of july.

    I'm working the Dakota County area. What's worse about several of my accounts is that they have irrigation, but don't use it properly and/or don't want to pay for the extra utility costs. For those of you on the hush, hush. Do you really think it matters??? We have competition around every street corner. LATER...

    I'm very close to Minnesota, Manitoba here and we've had all kinds of rain I'm very surprised it's so dry there.

    Last year my brother, who is a trucker was sitting in a field (he takes his dog with him) near.. I think Illinois. He said it was so dry there weren't even insects.
