    Is anyone else in south Lousiana having problems getting lawns to mow due to the drought conditions?

    It's the same here in S. Mississippi. Lost a lot of customers last year whose homes got destroyed, and now this drought.

    Its been like that in south tx. for a long time now. We have had some rain but not enough to get us back in the swing of things. My lawns have been moved back about a week. I hope something happens soon...the other day I went out to look at a bull that I was going to buy. The man that owend the place said that it had not rained on his place for over a year!!!
