It won't be long now. If your neighborhood is like mine, you'll be hearing the constant roar of the power lawnmower.  In the Utica-Rome area, considering all that rain we had this week, this will probably be the first real weekend of local lawn mowing.

I like to call it "The Lawnmower Oplympics", as just about every time I go to sit on my deck or take the dog for a walk, I hear those Briggs & Strattons reving up!  Yeh, I will probably be one of the team out there this weekend myself, and after all this rain, I may have to call in the Army Corps. of Engineers with bulldozers to mow it.  One positive thing I can say about the hum of lawnmower engines, it sure beats the sound of roaring snow blowers.  Happy mowing!
