    After two months of virtually no rain whatsoever plus above normal temps (mid 80's and 90's), we finally got about an inch of rain 2 days ago. Here we received 2/3 of an inch. Problem is, our atmosphere is "capped" (as high as 12,000 feet):usflag: , so rain is hard to come by. Now 'some' customers all of a sudden expect to see their lawns green. I know this is ridiculous (as it takes 3 weeks of good watering to bring dormant Kentucky bluegrass lawns back to normal this time of year). Anybody else experiencing this??? p.s How 'bout the homeowners who weedeat right down to the dirt? (Heat index here today = above 100 degrees). rscvp
