    Yea what a differance a week makes, We've gotten 6 inches in 3 days. Everything is green and growing at a spring rate. I am very backed up though, I have only been able to mow 4 yards the last 2 days and it looks like zero today.

    Glad to hear you got the rain. Send it over if you will! It's day 28 without as much as a drop. Across the Cape Fear river I do an industrial park, plenty of rain in that area but not for my residentials. The park is only about 21 miles away. Go figure.
    You can really tell where the irrigation needs to be adjusted for coverage on a few residentials............................................................ I hear it rumbling as I type, maybe! Lets hope.

    Well you should be very Happy you got the Rain. Came Home today to see the Water Dept waiting for me. The Lady that lives two Houses down called the Water Co. to let them know that I was using the water during a water Ban.:(
