    Hey guys need some input today I woke up and it rained all night and is raining today so I'm rained out normally if rain is in the forcast I mow anyways until it comes down on me now I'm not talking about a little drizzle I mean soak and wet. So my question is what do you guys do when your rained out? I can't stand staying home during the weekday and doing nothing. I feel like I got to get out and do something, but what, all my estimates are submitted my advertising is done for the year...... do I just need to stay home and relax or what? Thanks for the input

    equipment maintenance, more advertising, extra sleep, hookers, more advertising, billing.

    Hey Grassmanak, be careful using the "h" word. I would sure hate for you to meet the same end as Don Imus. You might offend someone. I always pull maintenance and prospect new accounts on rainy days.

    I'm sure grassmanak is not on the radio saying hookers, he is on a lawn website. I highly doubt that his customer's are on this website, so who is going to fire him? Imus didn't do anything illegal, just said some words that were very inappropriate. Not to mention he was joking around and it was a good idea.

    Hell if its raining out, I still will work! Unless i hear lightning i am out. This past tuesday we had some very much needed showers, I was soaked but got all my clients done, was a bit harder to blow the walkways and driveways but oh well :)

    Thanks guys for the input. Grassmanak you made me laugh my a$$ off I hadn't thought about Hookers (the bar). I'll keep that in mind next time I get rained out.

    Dude, welcome the time away from the business.
    Drink a few beers, score with the ol lady, make another kid.
    And you need suggestions?
