    im giving 10-1 odds this going to be drought year like 2016. We almost full week without rain and customers scrambling to get irrigation running, fixing broken heads etc. Usually don’t worry about that until late June.

    Nothing skipped yet but unusual late May to have such easy cuts.

    Working it’s way South.

    Will hit almost all regions like 2016.

    Chance of rain here every day in the next ten. Two weeks ago started raining Wednesday & stopped on Sunday.

    Lots of rain in the monthly forcast for my area. Well maybe not lots but enough for the grass.

    I’m praying for a drought at this point. I’m on 3RD round of shrub trimmings. We don’t usually trim until JULY.

    We’re looking at another 3 inches this weekend. We had 8 inches 2 weeks ago

    There was widespread drought in 2016. Hit almost everywhere.

    Usually rains every 2-3 days here April-June. A week without in May is unusual.
