    SAme here Tom and Shawn. Getting some rain and looks like some heavier stuff moving in. Doing invoicing now and will take a drive later on to check out the yards. My route that I do near Shawn looked real bad on Friday. Scheduled for Monday but that is going to be push back to maybe Thursday or Friday.

    Getting a little rain here now too. Most of them got fertilized a week or so ago, so this rain will help soak it in and green em up, hopefully. It is a real nice slow steady rain that will soak in and not just run off. Went and looked at a new lawn today, yes I know its sunday but w/e. It is really overgrown, their landscaper just stopped showing up about a month ago and never called. They paid their bill on time, but he just quit. So I will get some pics of before and after. It is roughly 15 inches tall in some spots, others maybe 6-7 inches. So now I will really get to see what my Tiger Cub is made of!!:)

    I am getting some rain here right now. Hopefully we will get a slow steady rain for the rest of the day. Tom, how do you like your tiger cub? I know that will be one of the things on the list for next year, not sure if i will get one or not but hopefully!

    It isnt a new one, but I love it!!!!!!!! On the lawns I use it at now, they go by sooooo much quicker. Especially at the apartment complex I do. Kinda sucked with a belt W/B. You cant go wrong with Scag, they are built like brick sh*t houses and will last you a very long time. If you have anymore questions about Scag, just ask and I will try to help you.

    Hi guys, it is nasty outside that is for sure.Heat index of 102 outside right now and they issued this a little bit ago. Josh how bad is it in Cincy. I know it can get real bad down there especially in the downtown area. I think you guys are under a heat warning if I heard right. Stay cool everyone and drink lots of fluids. with this heat the grass won't be doing to much that is for sure. Except for browning out.
