Comments: Tut Tut... Where is the Rain?

Well, I was able to replace my cardboard vent window in my truck with fresh cardboard. With no rain, at least it'll last awhile. I hope it doesn't catch fire.

Sorry. It is not three months of each season. Summer is 5 months. Fall is 2.5. Winter is 2.5. Spring is 2. Seasons may vary somewhat. There will occasionally be snow. What is worse is the occasional icestorm which brings power outages. The winters are mostly mild.

We may get as much as six inches of rain this weekend. I wish I could send you some.

Also, I'd be happy to show your boys how to use a snow blower. The politics here does stink, as does the traffic. But, Alafarookin'bama?

this particular item really pisses me off. Why weren't we on water restrictions LAST year? Why haven't all the cities and towns spent money like Jupiter to do so much more for the water? Yaa... And why aren't they doing a better job of advertising it???? It should be on frick'n billboards. I think half the people I talk to don't even know we are on water restrictions.

Well, We have four distinct seasons - usually, this year has been truly odd. We have a beautiful fall. Some years I need to start the pool cleaning in March, others - like this year - not till later - much later.

You and your boys are welcome here - I've told you that before. We have a lot of land, a lot of fun and we even have snow, so - come on up sometime for the snow! The sledding here is fun, fun, fun!

TN- I found another place that shows y'all aren't have drinking water issues like we are and I don't get it.

Denny- I'm cool with that. right now we have 9 months of heat and 3 months of 70 degree weather. I want Fall. I want a cold winter for a couple months where I cannot wait for spring.

Jimbo- Yup! NE corner. Not so far from Chattanooga. Near Huntsville in the foothills. It's BEAUTIFUL!

VW- I know. They put it on the news and in the paper, but many people don't watch or read either. It's a pain. And I'm still pissed about that golf course. George first brought that to my attn.

Oddy- One day we will show up at your doorstep! ;-)

It is ironic that in an area where we have 40 plus inches of rain per year we have a water shortage. But the problem is not a shortage of water as much as it is an overage of population.

I get pissed at the Florida state and county governments when on one hand the piss and moan about the water shortage but have never met a developer they can't climb in bed with..

It always surprises me how in a water shortage, grass gets so much attention.
It's freaking GRASS!
You can't kill it!

Now, if you have to water your lawn to keep it from becoming a fire hazard, okay, I'm good with that.

But you KNOW people are just worried about having a brown crusty lawn while their neighbor's lawn is lush green.

It's grass.
It'll be fine.

There was an article in Sunday's Dallas Morning News about homeowners and developers digging their own wells so as not to have to pay the city water department. I don't know that I have a real problem with that, if you can afford to build your own well, fine. I do have a problem with the 'gentleman' they quoted about his well who said "I just love the idea of being able to water like crazy during the summer when everybody else is restricted".

I'm not advocating a socialist state but good grief - how selfish.
