I had to adjust the timer this week to match the odd number schedule. As I looked outside at the temperature hitting 100 this weekend I could just see the ground drying and cracking and my grass dying. Luckily, our summer has been cooler than summers past, so this was only like the second weekend the temps have been that high. Even so, this water situation is depressing.
Being part of a Home Owners Association, I wonder how they will react to these restrictions. They really go after the residents for not keeping up with yards. What's going to happen when all of our yards die?!?!
Earlier this summer, there was a news story about a couple in Glendora who were fined by the city when their water conservation browned their lawn. I would imagine with the restrictions in place, we'd be in the clear from any fines, but you never know. Californians love their green lawns!
