    We now have had our wettest March in history. Combine that with a record snow fall over the winter and we have a mess. Every yard is saturated to the point that you cant even walk on them. I have 25k-30k worth of cleanups and mulching jobs to do and cant even get on any lawns to do it. Rain in the forecast for the next 6 of 10 days:dizzy:

    Well... it would be a great year for upselling flat rolling lawns, and maybe this will eat up a couple of weeks of contracts for you.
    Just keep your head up buddy it will be here soon:usflag:

    We're still behind on our annual rainfall. Georgia and NC still seem to be getting less than in past years.

    Here in Ga, we are getting less, but we are getting rain, and have even filled up a few of our lakes. I have my fingers crossed, but I have a feeling that we are going to get enough rain to keep the lawns green, and plants growing. We have been so busy, that we are booked thru Sept. with installs....just hope that rain keep coming so that the people we have scheduled later this summer wont cancel.

    Ya here in SC, we have been getting a good bit of rain since February. The weather guessers said we would stay dry:rolleyes: Anyway I am glad they were wrong again. We are still not in a normal pattern and need a lot more rain before the usually dry/Hot summer hits. You just never know. Maybe a wet summer with lots of tropical storms. I can guess just as well as they can:laugh::dizzy:

    This is what we woke up to this morning. Our creek is like the KY river.

    Nah, the creek drains very fast really. I'm sure we'll have Kayaks coming through today or tomorrow.
