We've had an extended drought out here in CA and now that I've recently finished my 110 RF restoration, it's pretty much like being all dressed up and nowhere to mow. 馃槩 It was 110 today, unfortunately not the RF, but 110 degrees 馃サ. It's been near or over 100 degrees for the past 10 days. We've been in a stage 2 watering restriction mandate since June which means cutting back on lawn watering by 20% and watering the lawn only one day per week for most of us. I live in a higher fire danger area so we can water 3 days a week but are still required to cut back watering by 20% from 2020 level usage. A lot of brown lawns out here and I'm struggling to keep mine alive. I have several browned out areas but still have 'some' grass to mow. The lawn has never looked this bad and I'm suffering from a bad case of 'lackofseattimeitis'! 馃ぃ I'm doing everything I can to save water including collecting about 30+ gallons a week from the condensation drain from my air conditioner which I put down with sprinkling cans. We haven't had any measurable rain for 3 months. Wish us luck out here and don't feel bad if you can't mow due to rain guys. Count your blessings and enjoy the seat time! 馃槈

Not in Berks County Pa for sure
Sorry to hear that conditions have been so dry too in PA. It's sad to see its affected so many crops and I really feel for farmers who work so hard to make ends meet and get hit so hard by so many conditions beyond their control. It's been a year with a lot of weather extremes in so many parts of the country. Let's hope for better weather for all next year.

Some real legitimat concerns about the coming winter for a lot of the country I'm sure. There's already predictions of higher prices of heating oil and natural gas largely due to the current government's policies that have have thrown away the energy independence we had just a short time ago. Let's hope the next winter is'nt too severe. In any event a good many of you are well equipped with John Deere blades and blowers and do a great job at handling 'old man winter' for your families.
