    We began irrigating march 21 last year. Normal target date is may 15.

    I have been in touch with our district, asking what I should expect. Everyone is saying nothing, it's all up in the air. One thing that is certain is that we'll be short and that we'll be stretched.

    I'm listening to the radio now, 20% content from the snowpack measurement and an estimated delivery of 5% to the regular users. Oh, yeh, another wildfire. This is January?

    Great weather for working though, and good for us in the business of water conservation.

    Where have you been hiding at?

    Seems funny that Mike Leary and you were way too quiet for way too long and then, all of a sudden WOOOSH, you both post over the same weekend. :confused:

    You in cactus hug or is he plugged in at your place?

    You bought an airstream! That's it, a road trip! :)

    Right you are about this drought creating opportunities for conservation education, upgrades and preventative maintenance. :waving:

    they've been writing a new theme song

    ♫ It's gonna be
    ♫ the best business year yet
    ♫ get it wet
    ♫ get it wet
    ♫ get it wet
