Here in Illinois we have had maybe two inches of rain since late June. Fortunately we had a wet spring and cool temps up till this week of high 90s. I know most of you have benefited from above average rainfall amounts this summer. Just wondering if anyone else can sympathize with me. I've been mowing most of my lawns every 2 wks since mid July and now some of them are so burnt up I'll be doing good to mow that much. It's just frustrating because this is the 3rd straight summer that it has been dry and it isn't like we haven't had our rain chances. Rain seems to go around us every summer and hits neighboring towns. I'm glad I have so many lawns for a solo operator and I've been trimming more and more shrubs every year, otherwise I couldn't make it at this. I do this to support a family of four and these dry conditions can get me down if I let them. Hopefully September will resurrect my lawn season like hurricane Isaac did last year. Just had to vent, thanks!
