    Rain yesterday afternoon, early this morning. Temps high 80's low 90's. Grass still growing. EOW still a ways off for me.

    Dry season means more irrigation problems to $olve

    Summer ain't ready to give up yet. Been hot and humid for the last few. Dew point was near 75F all morning and afternoon. Heat index was actually back over 100 today for a couple of hours, and it poured here this evening. Looks like temps will be running above average for the next week at least.

    ya, with this rain tonight, the grass will pop back to normal, at least for another week.
     
  9. True, but the next 6 weeks will be slower growth than June, July, august. Shorter days mean less growth. Bahia will def be EOW first week of October.
