PJ's income has almost been cut in half due to a drought! Ouch! What would you do if you found yourself in a similar situation?

Drought Cuts Into Landscaping Business (http://www.volunteertv.com/news/headlines/8250797.html) - Stillman says this drought has drained the business. "This time of year, mowing is a big chunk of our income and I've gone through yards I haven't cut in a month just because it's not growing."

Nearly 80% of PJ's income stems from mowing lawns and Stillman says their income has almost been cut in half. "I pull up and they tell me, no, it doesn't need to be mowed this week."

The longer the rain holds off, the fewer customers they see. "Normally about 60-70 a week and that's dropped down, you know, we're doing maybe 30-40 now, Stillman says. "If there's nothing to cut, there's nothing to cut."
