We had a few days of just sprinkles or no rain at all. Temperatures were down but the humidity was and is awful.
I took a stroll around the yard and holy molly the weeds! I thought I was going to have to buy a weed whacker. I was going out and pulling some of the weeds but the humidity quickly ended that game plan. But I swear those things were growing 1 1/2" per hour. I check the shed and sure enough I had a full container of spray. I walked all around the house and sprayed. I had to be very careful of Fred out in the yard until it all dried but I still wouldn't let him wander around. In a couple hours you could see lots of dying weeds. We had a sprinkling of rain but it didn't hurt the spraying at all. I got out there again this morning and did another round as the grasses don't die as fast as the broad leafy stuff. The humidity was worse than yesterday and I was so happy to be done. I came in the house drank a bottle of water and hit the shower.
I thought I heard thunder but wasn't sure if it was the kid on the other side of the road beating the hell out of his drums. Nope it was thunder. I checked out side and could see the effects of the spray since the sun had been beating down on the weeds as I was spraying so I knew it would be OK and it would further let the weed killer sink into the ground to further to kill the roots. I use I believe its called Spetrecide our something like that. Stuff is fantastic you think I would remember the name after all these years.
Lots of flood warnings so somewhere in this city they are getting far more rain than my area.
Good Night All
