    Just checked the forecast for this upcoming week and it looks like a good chance of rain on Monday. But what I couldn't believe was Tuesdays temps...65 High and 48 Low. Is it fall already?

    Thurs and Fri here were both very cool days. Perfect September weather. Too bad it's August!

    Down this way, Troy, we've had a ton of rain. I would like to see a few more nice days to get caught up.

    :D

    Yep, 60's and low 70's here in MN too, plus rain all week.

    Needs to be 80-90 and dry, windy, sunny for the contracts on the non-irrigated lawns to pay off. Gotta skip some yards here and there.

    Here in Jersey, it was just starting to get really dry in early July and then we had torrential rains. Now the grass is growing like it's May again. A bit too much of a good thing, but it'll get us through to Sept. when it cools down. Gonna be a very profitable year.

    Our lawns are pretty green up here in the Genessee/Shiawassee area. Just enough rain here and there to keep them green along with very unseasonable summer temps all June/July/August. My brother was telling me the almanac is forecasting big snow this winter which is good because the last couple have been pretty weak where I am located. Gonna need the snow to pay the winter bills and pay off the new truck and plow. I am getting the plow sometime this month because steel prices are going up again and it will be $3-400 more after Labor Day for a 7 1/2' Meyer. Right now, it will run me just under $4000, in a month or so about $4400 or so. 3 years ago a 7 1/2' Meyer was $3200 out the door. Hell, my brother got his 9' Meyer 3 years ago and it cost him $4600. Thanks George.
