    Clients are walking out all day saying it is too hot to be mowing, but these may be the same clients that call if we are not there, asking" What's up?"

    I had one client tell me Wensday I was crazy as h-ll for being out in the heat doing his yard, he was affraid I was going to drop in his yard. Told me to come back later and finish, I assured him I was conditioned for it ( :p ) It was like 100 with 90% humidity and I was dragging big time. Worst week I have had so far with the heat. Have not made it past 1:00PM anyday this week.

    Yes, Steve it was hot yesterday. We also did 13 or 14, and then went in for the day. We finished up by noon today. We had 23 to do, but my main guy asked if he could have the day off Fri! I shoud've said no, but I didn't. The heat is beginning to slow me down, we also need some good rain. Tony
