    All you folks up North that still have snow can come down here to the South and give me a hand.... Have rain and thunder storms forcast for the whole week. Am still behind from the rain last week. Pay won't be worth a darn, but I know a good B-B-Q place.<p>Looking for pontoons for my Walker.....<p>Jim
     
  2. In my market the elevation changes from 500 feet to over 2000 feet in five miles.<br>Yesterday I was able to work my jobs at<br>500 ft but in the &quot;mountains&quot; the turf was still covered with patches of fresh snow.

    Snow on the ground as I roll out of bed. How far is it to the BBQ shop? My appetite is more costly than a excellent wage (Tapeworm).

    I'm with you DMC300. Here in Central Florida, we're having the worst drought I've seen in a long time. I'm afraid my well is going dry up before long.

    I have never been to Flordia, but never pictured it as dry, always thought of it as a tropical paradise where rich folks retired. :)<p>Here's hoping that you all get some of this rain. But looking at the Weather Channel it looks like it is all moving to the NE part of the country. Even snow in PA. and north.<p>The envite still goes for the BBQ, this guy cooks a rib....beyond discription. If fact see ya'll later, I'm heading there now. I mowed his yard yesterday and need to get paid.<p>Jim

    I never complain about rain. The last 2 good chance we had died before it go here, Ground is starting to dry up. Though they are calling for a chance this week. Not looking good for the summer

    Tease! Tease! Tease! It clouded up. I got all excited. It broke up and never left a drop. I fear that were in for a two month straight downpour, because mother nature always takes care of itself. My lawn business is part-time (afternoons). The 4:00 PM rains can cause a lot of stress.
