Didn't you used to be bald? Stuff changes.

I was bald, but you are ugly, and my hair grew back.

I went and mowed the BIL's yard yesterday, it had been 10 days since the last mow. I pulled in the drive unloaded and took one swipe. Shut down and reset the level from 3.25 inches to 3.75 inches so I didn't have so much clippings. Was some places I could have went back to 3.25 inches but didn't. Will try to mow again in 5 to 7 days and will set the deck at 3.50 inches. That way I will be cutting a bit shorter but not leave wind rows.

 

I am ready for snow. Been wishing for the snow and zero cold all summer while the Skeeters and deer fly's were trying to carry us off or eat us alive. The deer flies are still awful and the deer have been hanging out in the open lawn to stay away from them. Have wondered if the deer would use one of those rope insect deterrent applicators.

You know my Dad and I were just talking about that last week and the grass is still going way to strong for this time of the year, but with over 5 inches of rain in August I guess we have enough water in the ground for now.

I haven'tmowed in almost a month and if we don't get some rain I may not have to now until Dec. or Jan. It's so dry here I get nervous every time I smell someone barbeque ing on their grill.

 

As dry as we were here a while back, it's crazy how things have changed the last 3 weeks.  I need to mow every 3 days, but haven't had enough time.  So by the time I mow, it's 5" tall in my yard, and worse around the farmyard areas.

  I sure wish you'd get some good soaking rain down there Brian!

Thanks for your Thoughts Daniel, We actually got about a 1/2" in 30 minutes this afternoon about 2 pm. That is the first rain we have had in almost a month and man it's dry here. You could hear the ground making a sucking sound as it was raining. I'm sure I will have to mow the weeds off this weekend as I'm sure they will be growing like crazy after the rain.

It's been 90's here since Monday, except for Wednesday when it was a pleasant 84, supposed to cool off some after today, which is 93 right now, with humidity of 64%. Feels like about 101.

Temp here is to be in the 70s for the next week. I believe the weather has turned. Soon there will be snow. After that the leaves will turn colors.

It's almost 90 here, but up the road 45 minutes it's just 76.  Be glad when that cool front drops on down here.

Glad you "Southerners" are getting some relief!! It's in the 70's here, heading down to a predicted low of 51!

89 & muggy as can be here in Fairfax, VA today. Hope it's the last of the muggy weather. Storms rolled thur and cooled it down a bit.
I'm finishing up a job here and I had the old existing 10 ton rooftop AC set on Arctic !! Cold on one side of the space and hot on the other. Duct work is gone so all the cold air is blowing one way. Not complaining though. Better then none at all.
