    There are several things i do to save a rainy day:

    Catch up on book work
    service equipment
    Give a few estimate
    OR JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY MY DAY OFF!!!!!

    Well we got about an inch today after 90 days of no rain here in Texas. So if you could send some of that rain down here.

    Lucky you if you can sit back. The rain you are getting has been here in Wisconsin and has picked up a little mow from lake Michigan. Lucky you again. We have had at least an inch of rain average per week all summer. The grass NEVER went dormant and at a point I was close to a 4 or 5 day cycle in August. The money is good but a break would be O.K.

    I was just in the U.P. and their weeds are cooked. It did rain a little but their grass is all gone. Good thing those boys get some snow. I have another front comin thru tonight so You will probably be playin Nintendo tomorrow too.

    Fall is close, I can't wait for snow.

    Here in south eastern Va we had over 24" of rain in June - August. THe summer was like spring. The grass grew, we were behind and labor costs were terrible. This is the worst summer in eleven years of business.

    Rain is forecast for tomorrow, I plan to get new tires for the truck, pick up new belts for the TT, get lumber to replace a rotted soffit on the garage, then distribute GWB lawn signs for those who have requested them.

    I suppose its a typical rainy days activities.
