I had to cut my lawn early yesterday while it was still wet from all
the recent rain. The grass was too heavy to use the mulching (no
discharge chute) feature on my self-propelled mower, so I put on the
discharge chute. Over and over again, the discharge chute would
partially clog and then finally clear, leaving large clumps of cut
grass all over the yard. I had resigned myself to having to rake the
clumps out today. After about 0.6 inches of heavy downpours last
night, I woke up to see that virtually all of the clumps had been
broken apart by the heavy rain, and I have no more than a half dozen
clumps that need attention There are some rewards in this workl after

Just a happy coincidence I guess. Usually, no matter how heavy the rain, it just
soaks the clumps, and they start to rot and damage the grass underneath. I
always end up with yellow patches of dead grass under those, more so after any
kind of rain.
I walked the yard with a regular lawn rake, and using the backside of
the rake went sideways thru any clumps that I saw breaking them into
tiny clumps that won't do any damage. Took me about 5 minues to do a
100' x 200' lot, minus house and driveway.
