    Been 98+ for the past 2weeks, grass is still growing like crazy due to the extremly high humidity at nite. This usually when the hacks start to quit. $$$$$$

    It's 101 right now and feels like you're standing in a dryer. Irrigation holding up the lawn pretty well but those without are suffering badly. I sure hate it for you full timers out there not getting their cuts in. That can be hard on the pocketbook for sure. I only have 21 yards but work a full time job at 50+ hours a week. I too have already been skipping cuts due to lack of growth/rain. Last one was finished up by 8:30 this moring after 3rd shift work. It was still hot but had to get it done. I think I will enjoy the air condition and pool over the weekend and pray for a T-Storm. Looks like the heat may hang around awhile being the whole country is experiencing the same temps. Good luck to all you guys/gals out there and be sure to drink plenty of water.
