    Man this blows I have lots of mowing and jobs to do this week the weather was going to be nice. Guess what now they are saying the temps are going to go from 80 on Tuesday to 47 on Wed then Thur a mix of rain and snow with Saturday snow showers and in the 30s! I thought we were in the clear but I am ready for snow still. I have sooo many lawns that need cut so tomorrow will be a bear!!!:cry: :cry:

    brother be glad you're getting SOME sort of precip...rain would have to get lost and ask for directions for us to get any around here! I hasn't rained here in probably three weeks.

    Try a whole season. Try several seasons with out any measurable rain.

    I know the feeling. At least around here its still early.

    Yup, same here, no rain for a good 3-4 weeks now, I am starting to feel so frustrated.
    Maybe this is what I deserve for talking too much trash, idk...

    Great wet winter but just like last year, come spring and nada, little sporadic 'test' sprinkles is all we get for months...
    I so hope this is not a repeat of last year but am already tightening up the ole belt, son of a gun.

    I think it's funny how nobody back east cuts in the rain. Come out to the PNW and bring a rain suit, let's go mowin'.

    We mow in the rain until the ground gets to soft for the Z. Many lawns cannot stand up to a heavy mower after substantial rain and you can do a great deal of damage.
