With this streak of hot weather in Spokane, lawns are going to be begging for a drink of water. That's good business for sprinkler companies around town.
But if you think your lawn is thirsty, you're preaching to Darin Hodgson.
"I've been doing a lot of seven to sixes, lots of work no life," Hodgson said.
The C&C Yard Care tech has been busy putting sprinkler systems back online and occasionally he runs into a problem.
The roots can put a kink in your system and that puts Hodgson to work.
"This is the first week where I've had time to breathe," Hodgson grunted as he dug a hole.
'Time to breathe' is not a mutual feeling for his coworkers at C&C's headquarters.
"No break, eat at your desk," Brenda Wood put simply.
Wood says the phones have been ringing off the hook since Friday. She tries to get everyone's systems back up and running by April 30th, but says for whatever reason clients end up canceling. Then, it gets busy.
"I wish that whenever I had scheduled them and sent out the postcards that they keep their scheduled appointment," Wood said with a chuckle. "That would be my biggest wish."
Hodgson's biggest wish? Probably that trees didn't have roots. But you won't hear him complain.
"It's a lot of fun to be outside and be in the sun," Hodgson said.
