Did you guys not recently experience severe drought conditions like the rest of the country?


I'm sitting at home too, but I'm not complaining about what is keeping me in business.


ETA: Is there an echo in here? LOL

We don't have the conditions that many of you are trying to deal with, early July it started to dry up some and caused some minor issues but then the rain came back and now everything is green and growing...I really feel for those dealing with drought conditions, not only in our business but everyone...My nephew runs a lawncare business in missouri and it's very bad out there...Don't get me wrong..I'm not complaining at all about the rain, I am very thankful :D Just didn't want to work this weekend :(

Good news then. Glad to hear it.
It was bad here for a month or so, but we've been getting enough rain to green things back up for the most part. Some lawns look like spring growth, but some are still struggling to recover.

I had a full day today, but the chance of severe thunderstorms made me decide to push it to tomorrow. This is my "long distance" day and I didn't feel like loading the trailer and driving ten miles just to sit in the truck and watch the rain, and lightning start.

Tomorrow is supposed to be dry, cloudy, and 72 degrees. SEVENTY TWO! WOW!

I think i may go out and try to get some lawns done. after looking at the forecast it seems like theres gonna be some breaks for an hour or so. Worst case is i cant mow and my mowers get a good washing!! They need it!
