    Almost had a situation.

    Had to mow yesterday. Just couldn't wait any longer. It's been so darn wet here all spring. My grass was darn near a foot long in some spots. Well...I got 2/3's of the front yard done and then went to the back. Veered off too close to the woods and got stuck. Thank goodness Johnny has four wheel drive! If not, don't know what I would have done. Took me over an hour to power wash all the mud off. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD QUIT RAINING!!!

    This will look real nice for my son's open house in a few weeks.

    LOL yuck what a mess! Rain? It's squishy in SW Va. too! There seems to be a fine line between not enough rain (see: Camp Fire, N CA) and too much (see: Nebraska floods; others May 2019), Don't know which one is worse. Can you slice off a turf strip from somewhere unnoticed and transplant it in the wheel furrows?

    I'm with you on the rain, enough is enough, at least back off so things can dry out properly. I mowed the other night but avoided our front lawn, my wife did that with the push mower, no doubt I would had a similar situation had I tried to do that with my tractor. Our potato field is pure mud right now, we are officially behind now as the 4th of May marked our target plant date. But I'm agreeing with you, enough already.

    Same here, we almost get dried out and here it comes again, more rain predicted for this week. Seems like its been this way for months. I have yet to be able to mow my whole place at one time, always too wet in some spots. I know we'll be wishing for some of this water come July and August, but for now, enough is enough!

    That's a good idea. I may be able to do that "IF IT QUITS FLIPPING RAINING!!!" Ok...done ranting.

    My lawn has never been this soft. I can't even walk across parts of it without leaving ruts. It got wet last fall and just hasn't dried up. Spots that have never been a problem are now a soft, swampy, and smelly mess.

    When will it stop raining?

    We're thinking of giving up on planting potatoes and opening a mudbog instead.

    Needless to say, the yard is the least of our worries.

    I'm about ready to get a load of sand, couple beach chairs and a palm tree for the lake that's developed in my back yard too. Oh wait, can't do that yet. It's still raining.

    Same here as everyone above. Gonna be a long wait to get in the fields. Same last year, think it was July 4th before we could cut 1st cutting of hay. More coming tomorrow night and Thursday. That and been so cold pastures and alfalfa fields aren’t really growing much. .
