    I live in Arkansas, and the past couple of weeks, I have woke up to some pretty heavy dew on the grass. Do the rest of yall still mow, or do yall wait a couple hours to let it dry up?

    depending on how bad it is (sometimes its like it has just rained) i still mow. if it's bad, i just take my time with it.

    I will mow if it's not too (like rain) heavy. May have to double cut some spots where it will clump. Just watch out on the slopes and hills for slick spots.

    I usually have to take it kind of slow in the morning, but once that sun comes out, it doesn't't take long to dry up.

    Bye the way, I too am from Conway - Welcome to LS

    If there is a lot of growth ill take the backpack blower and blow it off real quick . for me its quicker to blow the grass then its to scrape the deck . After heavy rain out comes the walk behind blower

    I just keep mowing. It may take a few min.longer than usual to get things looking good but it beats getting behind or working late. Because in southern illinois when tha humidity is high thare is a good dew everyday.
