    We're going straight from winter to summer this year, hope
    that's all right with everybody or just don't pay it no mind.

    We skipped Spring last year...and endured the worst drought (Apr-Dec) in my lifetime. May this year tend more towards average, PLEASE.

    pretty normal for down south. we only get about 2 weeks of spring and 2 weeks of fall. the other 11 months it's summer or winter.

    Oddly enough I have yet to even get a SINGLE call yet! What are my clients waiting for? They see the cold front moving in and thing that the past few days of rain with high heat won't mean anything when the cold sets in....

    Sad but I will probably have to double-cut my lawns first cut. Lost a few to underbids this year as well too. The weather is acting crazy and more people out there with a mower in the truck bed. I saw a few lawn companies out there with equipment on the trailer and no clipping on the deck so they are having the same problem...

    Crazy start to a slower than usual season that's and understatement.

    it's starting to grow here, but it's also been pouring rain and if it doesn't warm up good it's gonna take forever to dry out enough to mow anything

    No other way to put it, but this spring is pissing me off. Grass not coming in, drastic temperature changes, customers acting like they don't know me, rain. I guess it's the perfect time to do some weeding...... of customers.
