    So its rained something like 3 inchs in the past three days here and 4.5 in the last 6 days. Its completely sunny today and looks nice but its only 55 degrees out. I have already gotten 3 calls from customers saying their backyards are flooded so dont come. I tried to mow my yard and im leaving mud marks everywhere. Should i hold off a day to let things dry up or should i try to cut today..even though i may end up skipping around or not cutting sections of peoples back yards. Mind you...last week we had 3 days of rain so i ended up cutting 18 on Sunday and many of these are the ones currently due.

    Yeah, it will take longer than overnight to dry out from 3" of rain! Just wait a day and go out tomorrow, better to do that than to leave ruts and mud tracks all over the yards, it wont grow that much in a days time anyway.
