Last May we had rain on almost every day of the month and were completely shut down from normal maintenance. This year is shaping up to be just as wet, although we have had a few days between storms to get things done. Our rain gauge is checked every morning at 6 AM and so far we have emptied it 10 times in the past 21 days. The total for the month at our shop is just over 7 inches of rain. I believe that some of the course has had another inch or two, but the shop is where we take our reading. Last year in May we had 7.6". We have a few more storms to try and dodge before we get to June, but it's safe to say that we've had more rain than we need already. Hopefully we can be a little cooler than last year once the rains move out. Otherwise, we are going to be in for another tough summer of grass growing.
