Here in Atlanta, we just got hit with a serious water ban. Weekends only, even/odd Saturday/Sunday.....I have been cheating with some of my accounts, setting their systems to start at 4 am and I am only running about 10 to 15 mins, oppose to 25 to 30. I think we have a chance next weekend, but that too far away to really forecast. I refuse to stop the maintenance, but might have to hold back on weekly cuts, and just do bi-weekly until we start getting some rain. I can afford to miss maybe 2 weeks of weekly visits with all the mulch/rock installs we have been doing, but if I miss any more then that, then I think I might have to cut hours. I wont panic, just hope to keep it moving, and hopefully gain from all those that can't handle the downtime and have to close up shop when it does pick back up.

We have the same problem in the panhandle too. Thank god for the landscape and clean-up jobs that we have been blessed to get.

have you tried going to the local reservation and buying quilts and flint and ask them to do the rain dance? We are getting ready to get hammered with rain all weekend and Monday in Southern Indiana
