Snow isn't a big deal down south, but there wasn't much of it this year. With the hot March and high ET rates through the winter, and hot summer on top, with not alot of wet years preceding, this year is going to be a doosie for water supply.
The US supreme court refused to hear disputes over water treaties between Fl, Al, and Ga, opening the gate for Atlanta to take a bigger bight of the water that would be flowing south. Isn't that what the Supreme Court should do, mediate issues between states? If not who?
I hope the communities learned their lessons last year, when water supplies were down to less than ten days in some communities but no lawn watering restrictions were in place. There better be some brown lawns out there before we get to that stage this year.
We have permanent lawn watering restrictions with potable water and have for years now. It is frustrating when adjacent areas get into severe issues, impose draconic restrictions, then slam us for having more permissive restrictions.
A pint in time saves nine.
