    For a while when it would get really dry we would get just enough rain to help,got some today infact but its going to take a hurricane to really help. And thats somthing that I dont wish on anyone.

    Cane season starts tomorrow. I love storms. Yeah,I know I'm insane.
    But at least the chances for rain should start going up.
    Bring it on!:D ;)

    Man. I just got in from mowing and it was a tough day. Only a few lawns are showing signs of stress, but the others grew an unbeleivable amount. I had to do quite a bit of double cutting, but it was nice to be cutting grass.

    I feel for you East coast guys but I am not exaggerating when I say I can cut all of my customers on a 4 day rotation. It has been an unreal start to the season. Idon't know what to expect but we are now just shy of building arcs.

    I started a thread on this same topic 2 weeks ago called 'Surge growth to dust bowl' and since I started the thread, conditions haven't gotten any better. They keep calling for T-storms but never happens. I feel like Pig-Pen from the Peanuts when I'm mowing some accounts. Surrounded in a big cloud of dust. Keeps up like this and I'll have to start looking for my golf clubs!!!
