Pretty soon, I'm going to have me some mid morning breakfast, then I'm going to mow the lawn, just as I do every Monday. Sometimes the neighbors gardener is mowing at the same time I am. He has a great dog that travels with him, and I always stop and say hello to the dog.
My Lawn is Wet.
How wet is it?
It is So Wet, I have to wring it out just to get to my Mailbox.

I'm in S. Central PA and around 1pm we got a solid (high wind/rain) 1 1/2 hr storm that was as close to a hurricane as we get. Sun shining now like it could never happen here. I won't be mowing for at least a day.

I mowed yesterday. More accurately, I cut the hay field. It was the first day dry enough to mow since the grass started growing again. It was knee to waist high in some parts of the yard. Even with the tractor it took about 3 hours to do what is normally a 45-minute job.

I don't know where you are in Texas, but if you are anywhere around Amarillo, it could turn off cold and snow before suppertime.

I once saw a bear in Amarillo that had been caught in a rainstorm. I’m pretty sure it was a drizzly bear. Thank you. I’ll see myself out.

Live in Missouri, and finally was able to get around to mowing the back yard tonight. The up and down temps and constant rain have made it nearly impossible to get it done. At least it's not 18 inches tall anymore. Quite surprised that I hadn't heard from the city codes department already. They are very efficient about that around here.
