    Do you guys try and play catch up or just forget about the first day of lost work?

    Yup, i lost a week of mowing. I will do a few thursday afternoon, some on friday and resume next week. But growth is slow so it doesnt matter much.

    Same here. Its been raining steadily for a couple weeks, not constant but a majority of the time. Doesnt matter much. Lawns were toasted last month so.... should start leaves next week.

    3 days straight of rain is much better than literally 3 months of no rain here. You should feel fortunate :)

    Yea we could hae used this rain in july, but if it rains for that many days straight I usually dont bother tying to catch up to them. unless the customer says ok. due to the fact that I will be cutting them th following week. For some reason my customers dont mind not paying when it rains :)
