    Last three out of four weeks have been very moist around these parts. Quite unusual I tell ya. Yesterday I got chased off the job by quater sized hail. Somehow this week I am only two lawns behind schedule. The threat of rain can really make one hustle:weightlifter:

    It has been very humid up in the Seattle area the past few days. Warm and wet. Red-thread in the lawns, powdery mildew on the roses...looks like June in the PNW to me.

    Please send some rain this way. We're mowing dust and dirt. At this point, I don't care if we get behind on the route.

    This humidity blows. I can also do without the rain! That's what irrigation is for!

    yup, just over the border here in Canada we are seeing tons of red thread in the lawns and I am getting rained on at some point in the day just about every day. I am getting so sick of the lush, wet spring growth, at the end of the day everything seems to be dyed green.

    Exactly Jim, what's rain in Bend look like, a light mist falling from the sky? Complaining about rain in Bend is like complaining about rain in LA.
