Rain delays

Is anyone else having problems with late grass cuts? I can't remember it ever raining this much here in NJ.
Was finally going to get caught up today and again it started to down pour after only 5 properties. At this rate we may never get caught up...

Same here in PA. Plan s few days to get caught up and it rains. After all the rain the grass is higher then it should so the recut takes longer. Never ending cycle. The worst is bid approvals on roofs. Its like talking another language to reps on how you can't repair/replace roofs in the rain (I've seen some do it but not on my insurance)

We got 2 full days of mowing in last week. I ran a crew that volunteered over the Holiday and they worked one full day. I expect only two days this week of mowing and then more rain. I'm not crazy about the cliche but it is what it is.

I cut them rain or shine, wet or dry.

I might look crazy, but no crazier than hauling around mowers and snow removal equipment at the same time. This spring, I was doing snow removal in one of my areas, and cutting the grass in other parts. I also cut grass on the sunny parts of lawns, that still had snow in the shade. I have to eat when it rains too. It is best at this time of year to stay 2-3 days ahead. If you have a company that doesn't allow that, that's OK. I have three cameras with three different dates, one set for today, one for tomorrow, and one for the next day. I have also been drying of the grass with a leaf blower, it does help.

2 years ago I had to finish an initial on a day it was raining and didn't want it to be submitted late. I ended up losing control of the trailer when some idiot in front of me stopped too hard and I skid forward with 30 yards of debris. My tandem trailer was no good anymore and till this day my truck still has a dent. My point? Even if work is going to be turned in late just wait till it clears up. Not worth getting into an accident to please these clowns.
