    Look at the bright side, it will force the weaker business out and bring the prices back where they should be for the prepaired businessman.

    Trust me it wont do anything for the prices. And this is one of the worst years I have seen. We havent had ONE day get that, ONE day since the second week of March that rain has stopped you from mowing. Yards look like August and a bad August at that. I picked a good year to quit!!!!!

    Its been just as dry here as well. Our next chance for any rain is the 25th of June and that could obviously change. Even my irrigated accounts are starting to dry up, 90 degree temps really doesn't help either.

    Ohio has it too. Last year we mowed everything on schedule as it was wet all year. Right now most everything looks like Late July or August. OK with me as the break is kind of nice. I look forward to it every year. I do my best just to stay off of the turf. Mowing now does more harm than good.

    I think it is a very early drought season. To answer "get some's" comment I am prepared bad thing is i just bought a used scag and was looking at buying another Gravely but I think I will hold off for a while on that.
