Well, I used to be under the thinking that a Drought like we are having would hurt the "Scrubs". After some rational thinking, I have come do the conclusion, that this will really hurt all the legitimate operations out there. The guys who don't have insurance, or run junk equipment out of the back of a 1930 El Camino will not be effected by this, except they just won't be mowing for a while. Meanwhile, those of us who still have equipment payments, truck payments, insurance, employees (un-employment insurance), etc. still need to make those payments. And guess what, the guys who sell us mowers and work on our stuff, they are hurtin' too. This drought, especially here in the Maryland area, has some far-reaching ramifications. So, I hope everybody here has the means to survive this mess, cause nobody is going to bail us out. (As opposed to Farmers, who will probably get low interest loans). Just my thoughts on what is turning out to be a ugly situation. As far as lawn renovations, at least in this area. You need water to make grass grow, and our water restrictions will not be going away anytime some!
