    we need rain bad here. We had 21 scheduled lawns for the day, and we only did 6 because of how dry they were, 3 were iffers but we decided to wait on them. We might get some rain tonight, but doesn't look promising.

    Anybody else having a major problem with the drying up conditions?

    we don't have a problem with here in the east, we're just drying up which is a good thing. the local Golf Course has been closed for 3 days due to flooding.

    Oh man, we have just been missed by all the rain. We have had .8" of rain since May 12.

    I am sure you saw the thread of my fried lawns. Things will get way worse if we do not get the rain they are talking about on Thurs.

    Stop all this nasty talk! It's contagious, I had a bad case of this last year.

    Dry as a popcorn fart here in Genesee County. Most of my accounts have irrigation which really helps. It is smoldering today. 92 degrees I believe. I was up on Torch Lake this weekend and got a few inches over night on Sunday, but that doesn't do ME any good. We need it down here
