Two days a week was no where near enough water for a high elevation, semi arid climate with record heat - hence two years of forest fires here in the city.

Forward to now. Winter of 2013-2014 has snowpack at 175% normal in some areas, and reservoir levels just below average. Yet there was an article in this weekend's paper saying that our fine utility department may not have ANY restrictions this summer. Keep it at 3 days a week, forever. Get people used to it being the norm. We went to drought conditions in two years. Meeting on Monday with utilities where they will tell us water/snow levels, water restrictions, pricing tiers and rates. They should be promoting conservation every single year.
Most towns we work in have odd/even restrictions . Have since I was a kid.

And that's about how it should be here, in my opinion. Three days a week is fine. If not, the system sucks and should be overhauled for better coverage.

Seattle surpassed it's record wettest march rain fall ever recorded since 1890 with an expected 10" of rain by the next few days. We typically get a little over 3" for March .

Is Cali doing any better?

We've been getting some most of the week. Hopefully a significant amount this weekend.
