    I havent said anything in a while and just thought to say that I'm doing pretty good with my business. I had to mow in the rain a couple times last week. There was one time last friday that I should not have been out there, I started mowing a yard and it started to thunder but then it started getting louder and finally it started to rain and the lightning got real close so I got mower into truck and got into truck and waited it out. After it stoped raining but with lightning in the distance I got back out and finished. The storm itself lasted about 15 mins, that yard takes me about a 1/2 hr to do with mowing, trimming and cleaning up. I would not have even started the yard but it needed to be done and I try not to do yards on the weekends so I was obligated to get it done and I did. Other than that everything is going good. I've gotten one more yard and I might be getting one down the street soon. Next year I'm really going to get this thing(my business) going. I'll get a sign put on the truck, my aunt and uncle own a sign shop in tampa and they said they'd make one for me.

    Its a good thing you jumped in your truck, its one of the safer places in a thunder storm, worse place is under a tree i believe.

    Good luck *aussieflag*

    Yea that storm was pretty bad, it rained really hard for like 15 mins and the lightning was pretty bad. Like I said before I did get to finish the yard after the rain stoped.
