    Think i'm throwing in the towel today. I'm sick of ruts, clumping, tearing turf. Grass has been wet like everyday for the past 2 weeks.

    We didn't mow yesterday or today because of rain. First time for a long while though. We sure need it!!!!

    I mowed some yesterday inbetween the rain just to get them knocked down some. It is supposed to rain for another couple days and I did not want to deal with the taller grass if I waited.

    Very soggy and had to use the blower to take care of the clumps (2nd mower pass would not help under these conditions).

    Didn't mow yesterday and probably will not mow any today. If this was spring time, we would be out mowing wet grass but it can wait, now that its September. I'm sure we will mow some on Saturday.

    Raining here today and maybe on Wednesday. I will try to get 2 routes done on Thursday and then one route on Friday. It is coming down hard right now.

    Send some, or ALL of that rain to NE Texas. Our lakes a running dry as we are at least 20" below normal rainfall. Most lakes are around 8-10 feet low and some are approaching 20 feet low. As you can guess, the grass hasn't been mowed much this year.
