    It has gotten so bad here over the last 18 or so months that we now have signs posted around town warning of the watering ban. A few of my guys was telling me about this, but finally seen it for myself. We had so much hope going into today for rain, but of course just a bunch of clouds. But if we make it to level 5, then they are going to stop people from taking showers and baths....:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Now that sign right there says you cant water. If you dont water how is the water going to get back into the ground. Boom

    It's not quite as bad as '02 but only because we had some rain, a good one in August and another in May, and a few T-storms, but other than that it's pretty bad here in VA as well, I'm sure we're right around the corner of mandatory restrictions (I think that's level 2 or 3). May sound like you're worse off, and in some ways you might be, but it's just a matter of time here, I sure hope we get some rain soon.

    What about Stone Mountain yesterday TJ? Did you hear about that? They started their snow making process and were getting water from City water supply...people threw a fit and they ceased!
