    Anyone getting any rain?? Here in Maryland we have not had any in a month. All the grass is really dry, except the ones with irrigation. Lets start the rain dances!

    We just got a nice shower. The first in about 3-4 weeks. According to the radar there's more on the way. I feel good!:blob3:

    :( We haven't had rain in at least a month. I'm only cutting about 60% of my route this week and proply only about 30% next week. Today I had to wear a dust mask when I was cutting because I gott so much dirt in my mouth. Oh yah and it's only the middle of may, good thing I have a ton of paver and wall jobs lined up :cool: :p

    We got rain yesterday and today. Both days we quit early as it was getting too soggy out.
    Matt did say though he heard on the news that we are still down 1 inch of rain this month compared to last May. And down 3 inches for the year.

    I know Matt gets antsy when we have to quit early due to rain, but how in the heck can we complain? We're just grateful we are getting some.
