    I know im getting all my lawns done by 6 pm. They NWS has put my eastern region of KS in a moderate to high risk of severe weather including multiple supercells that could easily produce tornadoes. I suggest you get all your lawns done by 6 to 7 pm. Thats when development is suppose to happen. Stay safe out there.

    Good heads up. The same Low pressure system is going to hit home here in the MN/IA area as well. Possible severe thunderstorms and maybe some hail. Lots of rain predicted.....AGAIN.

    Only got three yards done today:cry: I had to go rescue one of my friends today a little after 7 so he could finish mowing the last yard of his day. We finished just as the tornado sirens were going off, that was a little scary.

    there was one in VA the other day, out in the east it really catches people off guard!

    At least all the grass clippings really get dispersed "evenly" on the lawns you guys service right :p j/k

    Let me ask you guys this, if the tornado sirens started going off, and you herd on the radio that there was a tornado on the ground 2 miles away, moving 35 MPG What would you do. Pack up your stuff and try and get away with that, or un-hook the trailer and take off?
