    Yeah Oneman, it will take a week for the ground to dry out. I'm looking at the very real possibility that this week may just be gone. I mowed Monday and that's it so far.

    Nothing but rain here too. I have a couple of lawns that I haven't been able to get to in over 2 weeks.:eek: Gonna rain off and on for a week again at least. I thought this was June not April/May?

  6. let it rain, last year it had already quit and was the start of a bad drought, so it looks a lot better that last year.

    I mowed in the rain today. Lost $50 worth of mowing thats all. The Scag did OK but I had to take turns very easy and slow! The sulky helps keep my feet dry in that standing water........

  10. It had a full color pic of a lake-no that was a field on the road to town.

    In May we had 7 days without rain. In June so far we've had 3 days without rain.

    Had a woman ask me today "Don't you think it's too wet to mow?"
    And I was dressed in rubber from head to foot.
    I've worn rain gear from the first of April.
    I wanted to say "Heck yeah! I'm going home."
    But I just told her "It's always raining. It either gets mowed wet or it doesn't get mowed."
    I asked her "Did you see the headlines in yesterday's paper?
    She shrugged and sighed, I mowed.


    It's like turfcare said "thank goodness for my Toro Super Flow Deck!!!"
    Mine's not super flow they're all Groundsmasters, but they work the same...Get that wet grass out of there!
