    I think a better question is, how many people dont work in the rain.

    lately, I haven't had a choice. If I don't mow, I will be weeks behind since its raining hard everyday..

    I keep mowing unless it starts to get really soaked. If I called it a day every time it rained I'd never get anything done. So far this season, I've only made it thru my route twice without dodging raindrops.

    I hope it keeps raining here in Michigan. Its been the best summer for me since I have started lawn mowing.

    Its that simple.

    Plus its nice to see everything so green this time of year instead of brown dormant grass.

    I never miss work time because of rain. It is very dry here, and it never rains for very long.
