You guys still dealing with a lot of rainfall?

  1. About 2 weeks ago we had rain like 7/8 days. It slowed down but we are getting rain every 3 days or so but they are good downpours lasting for axwhile. Thing is they are random as heck. Last Friday started at 530 and went till 730. Today randomly just started round 2 and maybe lasted till 3. It's been good enough where it doesn't ruin the day which is good. I have all my customers systems off and the yards are looking great...

    I turned several back on for watering on Wednesday or Thursday. Saturday was the last decent rain. If I left it up to them, they'd only turn it back on when the lawn burst into flames.

    Today seems like the first day I have not awaken to rain or very wet ground. Of course once the sun comes up the water on the ground becomes a steam bath.

    Traditionally our Rains come in the late afternoon a cool the evenings. By the next morning most all the water has soaked in. We always have had a high humidity in summer, but nothing like these last few weeks of tropical depression rain we have been getting in the early mornings or all day.

    The Rainy season came late this year. But when it got here it made up for lost time. Normally it is the first few weeks of August that we get daily Steam baths.

    Not much rain this week in our area. There were lawns already showing lack of water today.
