    now i know we need this to make stuff turn green and grow... but this is getting rediculous. week before last we got it 3 days in a row. last week 2 days in a row and now they are calling for it to start at about 9 tonight and rain hard thru tomorrow at about 3pm. plus the temps will be in the lower 60's. when's it gonna stop? i've been hoping you guys that NEED it would actually get it instead of us. anyone got a combine with a hay bailer i can use? :D

    We've had 4 inches of rain since Saturday morning and 5.1 inches in the past week. Need to double or triple cut most yards. My father-in-law has a bailer if I need it.

    Same here the grass is like 5" because its way to soaked to cutWhen ever it does stop it's to wet and muddy to cut. Although it is supposed to clear up mid day tomorow so i will try and mow then.

    Luckily it hasn't rained for a few days and the weather is getting up to 70. Last week we had snow on the ground.

    Your getting our rain up there. Down here in south Alabama we're almost in a drought. We havent had any rain in a month. We started driving past a few yards last week, the'yre just not growing. We hope for some rain soon. Plus its already 90 degrees. Send us some down here.

    Mike If anyway possible bring it down into Florida.....

    Hoping for some rain Monday....30%.............

    In all seriosness it is really dry here.........

    I know that is the reason that the phone has not been
    ringing.....

    But when it decides to rain...It seems like the grass grows
    2'....and the phone starts a ringing.........

    It is my guess that in each area, we will experience the same weather that we had in 2000. The El-Nino is building in the Pacific much in the same way it did 2 years ago. In NE Ohio, we had rain 2-3 days a week all year and cooler temps. Sure is shaping up so far.

    i'd love for you guys that need it to get it. i can't make any money with it raining and you guys can't make any without it growing. have they imposed watering restrictions yet?
