    We are having the opposite. We have now had rain for 12 days in a row. Not continuous rain, however, enough to ruin several hours of mowing or even an entire day.

    No measurable rain out here for some time now. Temps well above 100 and lawns are stressed.

    We're still doing pretty good here. We have only had to skip only a small handful of lawns last week. And we just got poured on today, so hopefully that will help out some.

    We have about 5 were skipping now due to drought out of 130 lawns. It sucks but its not so bad yet I do hope it improves.

    We skip most of our lawns this week. Stressed without the rain, no need to add to that with mowers, equipment, ect running over them. We did receive 2.5 inches over the weekend and there talking rain all day tomorrow. Were going to try to work, but maybe the guys will get the day off.
