    Didn't mow Monday, Tuesday, and won't be out until 12-1pm today (waiting for everything to dry out alittle bit). We had 2.19" of rain yesterday.. Over 7 1/2" for July

    2nd day home... but its no big deal, cuz i did a job moday, made good money, and still have 3 days left to bang out my route, working a little later into the day.

    Yesterday in the light rain yesterday, i bought and put together a swingset for my daughter. it took a few hours, and i used extra mulch from my "left over material from jobs pile". i used red cedar under the whole play set. I used a 4" hard plastic edging to hold it in. we had so much rain last night, i just had to rake about 4 bags worth it off the lawn!! You know how hard it was to keep my daughter from the back window and seeing the set, I'd have to bring her out in the pouring rain.:blob3:

    We just got tons of rain last night and this morning. Just getting ready to head out the door and see if I can do anything. Just remember without any rain there wouldn’t be anything to cut.

    It's worth a day off to not have to skip lawns because thay are dry. Plus its nice to relax for a change. I am going out to do some maintenance later.
