Our biggest problem last year was rain came all at once, if it would have came in spaced out amounts we would have been better off.
For July we got minimal ran, Sept. was a little off as was Oct., can't control the weather or how the ball in baseball boumces.
You can always be a Sox fan, it would be a closer drive for you. Northside is pretty far from your house.
