What makes me madder is ME being stupid enough to continue cutting after a rain starts. I came off a commerical the other day looking like a Chia Pet. The cleanup took almost as long a the cutting.:p

Here in Washington it rains nine months out of the year. If I don't mow/work in the rain then I would never get anything done. I actually like working in the rain and my mowers can handle it. I don't like having to unclog the mowers if we are bagging though.

We cut in the rain. In the spring we are doing just about everything in the rain if we need to. Heavy rain we pause till it lightens up. Rarely will we call it quits or not go out. Sometimes we start later that day.

The work has to get done. The schedule has to be kept. Can't spend all season catching up.

The lco i work for in the summer, I work 5 days a week, 10 hours a day absolutley no questions asked. The policy on rain, if it has rained overnight, we still report on time but may not go out until 10 or 11. If it is raining, we go in and do other work.

My boss is also a builder as well as living on a larg estate which he is responsible for ALL groundswork.

So if we are not cutting grass, we are weeding, sweeping, washing and cleaning at the estate. Or painting, hauling, or landscaping at the houses which he is building.

We usually mow from about 8 until 6 and then spend another 1-2 hours doing his extras...
