    Hello. Ive been reading about how some of you folks are having trouble staying caught up because of rain and grass growing inch a day. Will you PLEASE send us some! It has rained 3 times since January at my place, my whole yard is dead except for weeds. The only thing keeping me going is bahha grass and that stuff could survice a nuclear blast at ground zero, and it is tough to cut when it gets dry. I do have a few customers with irrigation sysems. This is the worst drought Ive seen since the early 1990s. Last year at this time it was raining every day but its gone now!

    i just called God, and asked him to please hold off the rain and change the jet stream a bit. He said he would...

    In all actuality though, our lake (27 miles of shoreline) has risen 1'7" in the past 30 days!!!! some break walls are completly under water and with the wind causing the rough water, peoples yards are being washed out. FLOODING LIKE MAD UP HERE.

    Front page of the oakland press was "where will all this water go" Even the rivers are well above flooding levels..by two -three feet.

    You know something kinda funny along these lines:
    Today i was looking at the www.wunderground.com to get a feel for this coming mowing week.. As i am looking at yet another screen of green, headed towards MI, my girlfriend peers over my shoulder and says something along the lines of "hey it looks like you will be able to finish your jobs on time this week"

    I SAY: are you kidding look at the rain coming
    Her reply: Well maybe it will go the other way towards Wisconsin, and out west...

    That is almost as bad as jessica simpsons "buffalo have wings?"

    You can come scrape the water that's standing on top of most of my lawns right now. More than enough to water the south.
