    The last 3 days it has just poured and poured all day. Finally, it's about time. But We got caught today because we were using a Demo Great Dane Scamper and it got soaked. Oh well. It's suppose to rain until sunday here. I had to skip some accounts so i'm not to thrilled about that.

    Lawnkid, I work around the Cleveland area also sure wish I would have gotten the three days of all day rain that you got. Late this afternoon was the first real rain we have had in a while. Maybe I should start working in your neighborhood, the grass might be a little greener.

    I'm always thankful for rain. Without it, alot more of us would be without much work. I hope more of you get some. Let all of us see green. :D

    Alright!!! It's about time you guys started getting some rain! From what I've read, and seen, you guys could stand a little of that 'forty days and forty nights' action. :D

    I was over in Maggie Valley last weekend and man was it dry...and I know that it was nothing compared to the Charlotte area. :(

    Glad your little fender-bender was a minor one.

    What's rain?

    We are actually getting a very little bit tonight. As usual it develops once it is past us. It is hitting the Norfolk area pretty well. We may get a whole tenth of an inch tonight! So just 10 more inches and we will be right on track.

    In the last 14 months we've had 1 month with at or above normal rainfall. We are over 20" short for the same time period. This El Nino has got to stop occuring every 3 years.
