    sleep in / get office work done or head to the nursery, or get some maintainence done. it seems like something always needs and oil change or new belt or two

    A rainy day used to mean just sleep in or study or work in the garage. Now, unless it's a monsoon outside I will go ahead and do whatever mowing jobs are on the schedule for that day. RAN OR SHINE. (cloudy is preferred):-D!!!

    Just finished 19 yards today,weather.com says its 91 outside right now, and feels like 98. Tomorrow should feel like 100, and ive got 18 to do tomorrow. wh00p!

    Here today, I am 3 for 16 because of the rain. Add those to tomorrow, and we have a really full day..but it's supposed to be raining again tomorrow, so I guess I'll get some designs and estimates together,,,,

    Same here. Lately here in GA, the only rain we've been getting doesn't last more than fifteen minutes, and that's long. Just enought to get the grass wet and the ground slick, but not enough to merit staying home.

    i only voted sleep in, but all of them should get my vote. Sometimes i cut ahead, sometimes i cut during rain, sometimes i do other stuff...>LIKE today i changed blades, oil, and paperwork.

    Rainy days for me mean.. Planting, mulching, rain gear... I stopped watching the weather earlier this year, so I never plan for rain.
