Dry weather affects local businesses

July 21, 2006

Albany -- It's not just farmers who are losing money because of the drought. Some area lawn care business owners say they're having a hard time meeting the bottom line and paying employees because work is slow.

Lawns need to be cut less frequently because of the lack of rain, so many landscapers are short on work.

They're hoping we get a good drenching soon. "I want a hurricane. That's bad, we need a tropical storm or something to come in here. We got to have some rain, and that looks like the only way we gonna get it is a tropical storm come in. And I live on a creek and I don't want no flood, but we need some rain bad," said owner of Mock-Run Lawn Care Titus Mock.

Titus Mock of Mock-Run Lawn care says the only yards he's been cutting on a regular basis this summer are those with irrigation systems.
