    I can't believe the turnaround in 2 weeks!!! 2 weeks ago I was plowing through thick, lush green grass. Today I had 5 accounts that I skipped. I guess 2 weeks of no rain and 4 straight nights of hard frosts will do this. At least now I can get some of my side work done. Think Rain!!!!!

    Got home yesterday afternoon and just as I got out of the truck the "hurricane hunter" plane went over our house. Told the wife about it and she logged on to our weather page to investigate.
    Seems there is a disturbance down near Cuba that they will be going out to check on today.
    IMO I think it's getting close to normal weather again,i.e.-rain everyday.
    It always goes from one extreme to the other though!
    Feast or famine!

    Same here...

    Growth has slowed tremendously. Lawns are looking almost like it's mid-summer. :confused:
