Default My grass is laughing

I woke this morning to a strange sound outside my window. Little chuckles and twitters were coming from the ground. I looked up and saw the reason. This strange fluid was falling from the sky, and everything was covered with it. Some of it had even built up in little pools on the driveway. My wife told mw it is called rain, something they used to get quite a bit of around here. My wife also told me that grass is not naturally brown and crunchy, and that this rain stuff would make it green, like it's supposed to be. I can hardly wait to see green grass.

We haven't had rain in over a month. Now we may get some for the next 2-3 days. WOOHOO!

If you look at hardwood trees it looks like fall is already here, but it's just the under-watered trees using up leaves for nourishment, so the leaves turn yellow and fall off.

Glad to hear that you finally got some much needed rain Larry. When I was up there 3 weeks ago I noticed how dry it was. I keep hearing my mother tell me how badly you need rain up there. Every little bit helps.

My grass is laughing, but for different reasons. It is laughing because it is growing so fast I have to cut it every 4 days Glad to see you got some rain up there. It would be really nice to see those lakes get back up to normal pool.

I cut my lawn Thursday in order to get the clippings out with the trash....I haven't been able to since with all the rain, I cannot get over how long and thick it grew.

I am not sure my regular mower will cut it now........

I too have heard my grass laugh and snicker. Something along the lines of "Keep sweating fat boy"

I think I might make wetland status around noon tomorrow.

Well got home from a bread run (italian beef) and it was clearing sort of so mowed. Would of made those no wake bass tourney wannabe's proud. No foundation damage from the wakes. Ought to at least dry out faster.

The Ancient White Outdoor Products Tractor loves chomping wet grass anyhow.
