    We have had quite a bit of rain here the past couple weeks.

    I cannot believe how fast the grass(even some that was browner than brown) has greened up.

    I'm back to cutting everything weekly now which is great.

    July stunk for mowing, I did EVERYTHING bi-weekly and a couple were every 3 weeks. Somehow, I still managed to gross more in July than I did the previous month though... Extra jobs I guess.

    Hopefully it will continue!

    good for you !!!!I've taken to hoping for a tropical storm or hurricane to bring enough rain to salvage my season. Come on Dean head this way. I still need rain to aerate and seed lawns in sept. and oct. Worst year ever for my lawn business in 14 so far. I wonder how many start ups will be gone this year after the rain does come. I have weathered many of these by help from a full time job and a power washing business but it still hurts the bottom line. You have to save money to get through these expected droughts.
