    rain poncho is the key. ..that is until the lightning starts then it's time to stop for a while . look at this lawn , we are 4 days behind now so we have to cut as often as we can to catch up. we cut here 1.5 hours after the monsoon turned into a steady trickle. it was soft but also about 6 " high. so what ya gonna do ?

    Man, I worked to get AHEAD of schedule. I saw that stuff coming from my new fangled computer thinga mabob. It's not really much for conversation but, it keeps me informed about weather.

    Geez how long did it take to blow the average driveway off???

    First time we've had rain here since the end of June, I wasn't about to try mowing in it...
