It's already getting hot there?social port wrote: ↑Sat May 11, 2019 11:13 pmHey Green , yes, I'm still getting lots of rain down here. It has pretty much been raining all day today. I had planned to take advantage of that by applying some products that need to be watered in, but I didn't get the opportunity. Once Sunday passes, I am headed into a solid 5 days with no rain, so at least I may be able to get a post emergent spray down early next week.
Temps are conducive to disease. Locals say that we had a short spring.
Daily rains complicate mowing and postM plans. It makes me wonder how LCN and other Florida lawn hobbyists get things done.
A far as Florida, I don't know. Good question. One idea though is that the almost daily rain tends to occur in the late Spring through early Fall (that whole period is Summer there), when it's typically 80-95 degrees for daily highs, and the sun is really strong in South Florida during those times of year as well, so I would guess it tends to dry out quicker as well, considering that and also that the rain often only lasts a half hour. During the late Fall through early Spring, it's typically cooler (60s and 70s for highs are common), but there is also less rain in general. Fort Myers, for example, gets about the same amount precipitation per year as my area (50 or so inches), but mine is evenly spaced out over the entire year and some of it is snow. Your area seems to get a lot spaced out over the whole year, too.
What you and I have been having the past 6 months, is more like the PNW from what I hear! How do they get anything done?
