Default Rain Days

This morning lawn crews all over the country loaded up and headed out in the world to mow grass. However this morning I woke up to the sounds of rain and thunder outside. Nothing like looking out the window and watching your profit margin Slipping away. Another weekend of work for me providing it doesnt rain all weekend like they say its going too.

I also have rain problems but I got out and run my route each day, sometimes it is raining on one yard but not another, I will sometimes go back to cut a lwn in the afternoon that I skipped in the morning. I only have acouple of yard that have to rally be dry to mow. so I work every day, sometimes doing tomarrow yards, sometines doing yesturday lawns. I never have a problem of profit slipping away.

Rain days are better than "truck in the repair shop" days.


Much less stressful.

Rain does make the grass grow!
If you want to see profits slip look at dryness.
Last year Aug and Sept. sucked with no moister.
And winter snow removal was almost none.
I hoping for timely rains this spring

Absolutely. Today's all day rain is quite a blessing. I was going to fertilize but I'm much happier and I can shift it to Monday.
