    I'm sick of rain. I know I shouldn't be complaining, but I'm allowed. We cut one yard today before the rain came and it never left!! Its august, but the grass is growing like april!! No offense to the guys in texas, but I'm sick of rain.

    Cutter, I got rained out Monday and today. I'd rather be a day behind from rain, than in a drought situation like last year. Don't worry, You"ll catch up this weekend!

    Cutter1, You're not alone I only got 3 yards done this
    afternoon (after some morning showers, just enough to screw
    it up) the last yard in a down pour! It'll just make
    tomorrow more interesting,HA HA.

    Good Luck!

    The last 2 years have been drought city, but this year the rain has been unreal. Most of my lawns are soggy and have been that way for months. Hell you could have seeded a lawn in July and it would look great now.

    i am done early and did all my houses in the rain....it's easy- don't use a rotary mower....they suck in the rain....use a power reel. in seattle we only get 2 months (in a good year) of dry weather....reels will pick up every bit of grass and do it very well....sometimes an old way of doing things is better

    Please send the rain to Texas. It is no fun mowing dry grass.

    Ditto for the Spring like growth here in N.E. Wisconsin. We seem to be much luckier - it rains at night. We are 6" above normal for the year and I had to bag almost all of my accounts this week.
    I hope it slows a little but I can't complain about the paycheck.

    The rain's been tough to deal with in NJ.Hard to stay on schedule and makes for hard cuts, but the lawns look great and the money's great too!
