send water please

hey guys a city near here, Siler City, has 60 days of water left... they're currently TRUCKING in water at a rate of 140 semis a day, this is included in the 60 day figure as the trucks can only supply 30% of the daily supply. so please send any unopened bottle water (I know you west coast guys don't drink tap stuff) or beer.

So they pump out of ponds for potable? No wells?, or has the auquifer got so
drawn down that they've about failed? How's the nursery going to survive?

Bandon, I know how you feel... Here in Raleigh we are now not allowed to water outside, by any form of sprinkler. The town is down to a 95 day supply, and has stopped issuing new landscape permits, and customers are canceling contracts, not just for me but all contractors are taking a hard hit by this, I feel sorry for those who rely on H2B work, and new housing... (not). Seems like an early winter, shut down shop yesterday, but will start back in late Nov. for winter blow outs.
I love contractors who do not blow systems out. Even though we didn't have a hard winter, I replaced 52 backflows this spring, because they froze and broke. Hopefully I get the same type of response I did in the spring, 52 new customers, not to mention neighbors and friends.

RAIN TOMORROW!!!!!!!

I hope rain is falling where you are now. As of right now we are getting a nice steady rain. We also had a good rain yesterday.

I had no idea is was that bad over so large an area. Maybe this wet pattern in the central part will start moving east fast.
