    We cut some today. We have to cut tomorrow thru Friday. No choice. We have a landscape job scheduled for Sat. already.

    Ditto for CT.I'll be out there on the drier lawns Friday and Saturday. I have to finish a big mulch job on Sunday (absolutely hate it) that I started today in the rain. I'll probably still be cutting Monday too, it sucks.

    We'll try to get to what we can, even if we have to cut Saturday and Monday to catch up. If it is too wet to mow, I can pull the mowing crew over to other projects and at least have them producing. God I am so happy I sold off some of my maintenance accounts:clapping:

    I got a lot of mine cut monday and tuesday knowing the end of the week looked bad. I have to go out of state this weekend so cutting then isnt an option. If i cant get out thurs or friday i may just have to hold them over until moday.

    We will don the rain suits if needed and myself and 2 others will help the 2 crews catch up mowing...landscaping jobs taking another day or two won't make all that much difference in the long run...trying to stay on schedule with the lawns at this time of the year with all the rain and fast growth is more important IMO.

    Can I please beg you for some rain! It is so hot and dry here every yard I have except one is dead and brown with zero growth and no rain in the forecast at all in the near future. Calling for over 100 degrees Monday! Last year it rained for 3 months from April till end of June. It has rained 3 times total in the past 3 months and we need it bad!
