    A new record here in Charlotte, the old record of 40 days without rain back in the late 1800's has been broken. It's been 41 day's and not a drop of rain, now the mountians are burning and the leaf fall is not helping. Here is a photo of Charlotte taken TODAY, the smoke from the mountians is so thick here it looks like a rainy, overcast day!

    Looks like midnight in that picture. How are the lawns holding up?

    Dry as a bone here also. Doing leaf removal is one dusty job. A little rain would be nice.

    Well, just after posting this my wife called on the NExtel and said it was raining. We had a little drizzle so we'll see what happens. The lawns that have been watered or have irrigation are doing ok, the others...well...crunch crunch.
