Hasn't rained in over three weeks, with a slight chance for rain tomorrow night. Otherwise, nothing in the 10 day forecast. Temps in central Iowa have been averaging upper 90's, with several days over 100. Lawns are torched. I mow on the side, so I only have 15 regular customers. Mowed for the first time in three weeks today. Pointless. Other than some weeds here or there, it didn't even need it. I mowed some shaded areas where the grass was a little longer, and used my string trimmer where needed in areas of full sun. I called the rest of my customers and told them I'd be out sometime next week to spot trim where needed. No one objected, and thanked me for taking it easy on their lawns. I offered to trim hedges, bushes, etc instead, but no one bit. Which didn't bother me at all, as I've been extremely busy with my full-time gig. Been a brutal summer after such a great start in March!
