    Shawn,

    I was wondering how long it would take for you to get here. The rain we got on the fourth sure did not help much.I figured by Monday things would be green but that is not the case. Still going to go by at least two routes this week and maybe a few that I skipped last week to see what is shaking or baking in the sun I should say.

    Just wait until 3 a days start for practices. I will be the one laughing then. Went by some more yards this afternoon and the rain did very little for them that is for sure. Calling for some maybe mid week.

    3 a days, practice after school and games make it hard to squeeze mowing, leaf clean ups and fall clean ups into saturday afternoons and sundays but I'll have my uncle and another guy do most of the work during football season.
    Then after football is over i will do more of the work. After that in nov. thru feb. hopefully i will get to use the plow on that stuff... oh yeah snow! and have some fun this winter, hopefully with a new TRUCK!

    Well the rain we got last week did some greening up, but with the hights int he 90's the past two days theyare going back to brown. Yards were at 14 days and had very little to zero growth.

    This is really starting to stink!!! The leaves on the trees are already starting to look wilted and dried up. If this keeps up, we could have an early fall. They are saying 60% or so for weds to here, but it doesnt mean its gonna happen. Oh well, just keep hanging on like this past winter, rain will come sooner or later
