    Anyone else have a similar forecast? I'm sick of rain!!! It's like this year is exact opposite from last year. Last year was severe drought. This year we've had about as many sunny days as we had days o rain last year. Why only one extreme or the other?

    Dealing with rain is a lot better then dealing with a drought any day of the week. Just get a little wet and enjoy making money rather then waiting on the grass to grow.

    It's not the thunderstorms that get ya...it's the full days of rain. Looks like we have broken the pattern here in the northeast. I'll take scattered thunderstorms anyday.

    The weather here is so unpredictable I literally do not pay any attention whatsoever to the forecast. I get up, put my head out the door and go from there.

    that looks kinda like my forcast here in atlanta. i have quite a workload and the first weather break were gonna get is on the forth of july. i've been debating weather or not to mow on a holiday out of consideration for the customers but some will probably be irritated if i dont take advantage of the break and do their yards, you know how that goes, with some your damned if you do- others your damned if you dont. for the most part though i'm not gonna fight the rain i'm just gonna chill till the sun comes back and mow non-stop till i'm caught up. i sure hate this weeks schedule running into next weeks but it's starting to look that way. :( :D :cool:

    I sure could go for some rain here, it's just hot, hot and more hot here. Those greens just soak that water I put on em, and then want more. I been bustin' my tail to keep em lookin' good. Be nice to have a day off.....tommorrow is my 10th day to work in a row, looks like I'mma have to make a full 2 weeks to get a day off, but overtime pay sure is nice.
