    Last year was the first year that we ever had to work on Sundays because we were getting rained out during the week. It seems like last summer was our wettest summer that I can remember. I am just curious how bad your summer was last year and how you dealt with the conditions. This winter is absolutely flying!!!! Only about a month and a half until mowers start getting fired up.

    Im excited!!!!! Getting tired of holding these sofa cushions down lol

    I agree...definitely one of the wettest summers that I can remember...its bittersweet though...it makes everything all backed up and kind of a pain, but at the same time everything was growing and it's definitely better than a drought. I hear ya though....I can't wait to get out there...I'm so bored.

    It was pretty wet last spring. There were a couple of times were we were mowing in 2" of standing water. What a mess.
