All of the rain has left people with some seriously long grass. I managed to cut my yard just before all the rain started, and squeezed in one more cut after all the rain began. Since then, it's been probably a good 3-4 weeks since I've been able to cut it.

I know, the rain has been gone for the most part for a good week now, but we've been busy with wrapping up the kids' baseball seasons, so there hasn't been enough time. It's gotten to the point where I just hired a lawn care company to take care of it for me today.

I saw someone in Amarillo mention a different way to get their grass cut. The idea was actually pretty smart in my opinion. They asked if anyone had goats that may want to come and graze on their lawn. The user mentioned having a lot of weeds and clovers in their backyard.

The comments didn't disappoint here. One person mentioned sheep might cut it closer for them. Another user thought it was a great and very environmentally friendly way to do some grass cutting.

However, one person commented it how they saw it by telling the poster to mow their own lawn, but with much more colorful language that I don't feel the need to repeat (I mean, technically I can't, but I wouldn't anyways).

Personally, I think people that have animals that graze on grass and weeds should take advantage of all the green that we've seen pop up due to the rain. The animals get what they need, and all the long grass that's hanging around will disappear.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
