    I live in northern Virginia and it has rained almost the entire month of May. My installations have fallen a month behind and customers are getting antsy. I have had to give a couple of people their deposits back.

    How do you guys deal with weather? This is ridiculous...I'm considering going into the ark building business instead.

    Know exactly how you feel, been fighting uphill the past month. Thank goodness that April for us up here was actually pretty dry or I'd be buried more. The rain here is nearly at 200% for the month and the lawns are really starting to show the stress, red thread, leaf spot, even some brown patch. Hang in there, summer will be here and hopfully with the temp increase things will dry a little faster!
