    I am here in Covington Ga looking at the radar and watching it split up right over my county. I am praying for just a little bit to make the grass a little easier to cut tomorrow, I have got a full day, and a little moisture tonight will definately speed me up, not to mention a little break from the dust. My lawn hasn't gotten a drop but I guess if even a few of my customers are that is good enough for me.

    Tjsquickcuts I need you to teach me your rain dance.

    my town has only had about .25 inches in August and everything that is not irrigated is tough dry and withered, almost dead. If we get even a little rain maybe it will make it stand up a little, and it will surely help with the dust. It just seems to me that this drought is making some of the weeds and grasses tough as nails, leaving stragglers with new blades and slow ground speeds.

    wow, want some of ours? before the deluge we got today, we've had ~19" this month. I'm not going to be mowing anytime soon.

    I have been full time for 5 years now and this year is the dryest and the hottest so far. 20 something consecutive days over 90 deg. with heat indexes of 100 plus. Hot and dry. My earnings this year are down but my number of clients is increased. How does that happen? Less visits per lawn. But I am not trying to whine I love my job. This heat is only makin me skinnier.
    Lol. Congrats to you on the rainfall. Keep your schedule tight as you can, and make some $$$
