    Yes...It's downpouring as of right now in colorado....Its been the driest year on date since like 1933 or something like that...Flash flood warnings all over the place.

    How's the weather treating the rest of you guys in other states/canada?

    Well it was good when we had 10 inches of rain in 2 weeks (in June), that really kept the grass growing for a few months. But now, the lawns are all dried up and we have a normal drought for this time of year. I've only mowed half of my lawns over the last 2 weeks. Just when I added more monthly payments too :rolleyes:. Oh well.

    Mostly the same here in So. Minnesota. Wet, wet June followed by real dry July into August. Lawns are half dormant. But, I am hoping we don't get flooded out again up here like we did last August (8 inches of rain/24 hours).

    we've been real lucky in central illinois this year. past few years have been considered droughts here. this year i don't have a single lawn showing signs of stress from lack of water. every week or so its rained a little bit, and these past few days its rained all day and night. we kept cutting on a routine schedule all the way through july and so far into august
