We may get some rain in Atlanta today... that's good. The past three months have been the second driest on record according to the news report the other day...

See, hurricanes are good for something. :D

Actually, if it weren't for our proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, and the frequent tropical storms that impale themselves upon our region, the Southeast US would likely be a desert.

So for the past month or so, we've had the water police patrolling neighborhoods, encouraging neighbors to finger their neighbors for watering indiscretion, and are restricted to an odd/even day watering arrangement. Heck, some localities are restricted to once a week.

But I find it odd that if you have recently had professionally installed landscaping, you can then water your lawn w/o much restriction for the next 30 days... I guess the message there is that if you can pay someone to install some plants you're golden. God forbid you do it yourself.

If I pay the kid next door, does that count?
