    Glad this weeks over. Worst I have seen. Grass was thick, tall and wet. Wind was a blowing. Mowers had to have the grass and mud scraped off them. Shingles you name it in the yards. Just what are the chances of another round of weather like that!!!!! At least we can mow compared to the poor people down south.

    That's the nature of this business, somewhat unfortunately you have to grab it while it's there...
    And I say unfortunately because in quantity it is hard work and wouldn't it be nice if we could spread it out,
    but I am telling you, grab that money while it's there or else it's gone.

    Southside cutter, I agree! It was a terrible week to mow. Hopefully, you didn't get hung up any did you? I almost did a few times but got lucky I guess. I don't want this much rain again in one week!

    Guess I should have kept my mouth shut. Everything is flooded again and next week looks like another wash. I didn't get hung up but would have if I used my big mower with turf tires. Used my TC all week with the AT 101's and they are amazing, but if you do spin them they do a dandy job on the grass.

    We got to mow a few blades of grass yesterday... Still working on yesterday's 40 MPH East wind leaves, by using today's 45 mph West wind... Next month we look forward to a couple more blades of grass to mow... :)
