    ya me too, get yourself a nice water jug, another thing I do is use 2 smaller tupper ware containers and freeze 2 big chunks of ice every night and use those rather than icecubes. works better lasts longer saves icecubes and is easier.

    I'll have to take a pic of my lunch box "setup" tomorrow. I've got a good system. My lunch box is so big, I'd hate to have to carry a 1 gallon or 2 gallon bucket with me. There's barely enough room in the truck as it is.

    deere, ... I had drink in a cooler. But, I just "forget" to drink, ... too focused on what else I am doing.

    Strange day, but I think the variation in the area was wide. We just missed a T-storm about 12:30. It slide north of us. But, we got hammered about 3:45, and had to quit. I went back about 6:30, and finished the job that was partially done. It was my worst job to get rained out -- about 2" growth since my last cut on Saturday, and "mushy green" wet with very high moisture content, and having to bag off the clippings. In the end, it looked fine. I have two jobs that are on a twice per week schedule now. The excessive moisture is just making the turf explode!

    Oh, these lawns are terrible. Some could be cut every 3 days! Especially with the nitrogen from the crabgrass pre-m. We just don't have time to do as good of job as I'd like, but I guess it looks "good enough" at the end of the day.

    haha, ya I hear you on the truck space and yes it sucks carrying all that, having another guy and all that stuff in a single cab is tight. An I have seen other mowing companies with single cabs and 3 guys!
    same thing happened here i thought we were going to get it at 1230 there but we got lucky
    I say that every spring lol

    I should ask for an extended cab truck just so I can have the lunch box space

    How did everyone make out today, anyone get hit with the storm? Couple little sprinkles then It hit us doing a commercial account about 4 and poured for 5-10 minutes then all dried out.

    Yeah, it was hot and humid all day until about 430, then it cooled down, showered for a few minutes, then it was clear again.
