    Everybody, PLEASE wash and wax your car!

    If no rain, wash and wax the truck next day.
    If still no rain, the trailer day after.

    Keep washing + waxing a car / day and it HAS to rain.

    Well it always does when *I* wash/wax my car!

    Cleaned the inside of one of the trucks today. Was thinking of washing it but I am going to do that in the morning when the sun is not beating directly down on it. Who knows the truck that pulls the trailer might get a bath too. :cool2:

    Yeah we sure could use some rain up here in No Va also. I have a bunch of lawns starting to dry out becuase the customers dont want to water. I will probably have to skip a couple of lawns next week due to no growth.

    It's getting crispy and its starting to worry me. I dont see any real chance for a good rain for atleast another week probably longer.

    I pulled the Mustang out of it's little hidey hole yesterday. Even that didn't provoke any rain.

    Got a wee little bit of rain this morning, don't know if it will help.

    I'll do my part, I'm going to leave the windows open on my WIFE'S car, surely that'll make it rain. Or else I'll just be in trouble with her...

    Ive been on vacation most of this week because of it being dry, we are getting a few showers but not enuff for any growth , its just kinda holding its on. On a good note I have been doing some steep banks that I usually cut 1 time a year with the brush cutter, And I usually put some lime down on yards that need it in july, so I may move that up a few weeks. Still too early for the August pruning of shrubs yet and all of the azaelas have been pruned. May be a good time to paint an old trailer and get the canoe on the river
