    If it's any consolation, we're riding it out together. It is brutal. Lets hope this pattern changes or we're in for a rotten season. I saw the results of someones deciding to mow in this crap, and it was line after line of brown muddy tire tracks. I don't think I could do that to my customers. May the dark days pass... and soon :sleeping:

    There isn't much of a choice, the mowing has to be done. Luckily the lawns are coming out fairly decent.

    I mowed all day today and I will be out there tomorrow. Iv been using double blades that are sharp. Then I raise the deck and cut it 2 more times. Then back pack the lawn. It looks OK after. But oh man this rain and bad weather is going on and on. I don't think iv seen the sun out past 5 o clock yet since day light savings time. Here it is May 25 and I have to warm my hands in the exhaust from the mower. Ill be 39 tomorrow, and I wonder if I'm to old for this crap, lol. naaa, theres worse jobs.
