    :angry: Man is it dry here, havent had any rain in three weeks now and its really showing now, all the lawns are brown that I take care of and they look ugly :mad:
    I really hope we get some rain soon otherwise we won't be mowing for another two weeks at the earliest.:( :confused:
    You guys out east are getting all our rain that we need. Luckily I have other work like mulching and trimming to do otherwise I wouldnt have much work to do till mid August when I have to work on a lawn install. Kinda weird that about month and a half ago I was double cutting most of my lawns:rolleyes: Which Id rather be doing that looking at freeken brown lawns :blob2:
    Hope the rest of you have nice green lawns:cool:

    It has rained here often enough and just in time to keep the lawns green and growing. Calling for more rain this weekend, will keep things going I hope. Last year, everything was DEAD!!! ARGH!

    After 3 seasons of drought conditions. What we have now is a blessing. Love the cooler days. OK, so it rains. Don't you all cut through the rain?

    No. I don't cut in the rain, it's not worth the hassel. I'll take a rain day in the middle of July over 2 months of drought July through August.

    :D
