Anyone ever heard of drought insurance? It would only make since, they have it for farmers, why not Lawn care Companies?

Not a bad idea. But it would be expensive & you would use it once & they would cancel you.
The best insurance is having a diverse biz. Having something to do that does not involve the weather helping you is the best option. I do pressure washing & it is not nearly as consistent as mowing, but it is nice to have it when grass is not growing so fast..

power washing requires water. If a drought gets serious enough they will stop that too.
