    The lawns are not as dry as July but some are still bad.

    here is one from around July 15 to get us started.

    I posted this a few weeks back the lawn started on fire from a cigarette butt.

    You lucky dog, awm. Here in Matthews we go zero, nada, none, not even a drop.

    I came home today and it poured down just as I turned into my driveway. By the time I got to my garage it stopped. And my driveway is not that long.

    I will take some pictures for this one. I can find plenty. It is dry around here.

    I should have taken more pics in July,

    The little bit of rain along with everybody finally cranking up their irrigation has brought them back some.

    I have one in mind (won't be there till Thurs) but I have not mowed it since 7/5. The trees in there lawn have all turned brown and are dropping their leaves.

    I have called them and told them they need to water but must be they are too busy.

    I will take some more pics this week.

    Well here is one of my Shreded Wheat lawns. I have cut the resolution down and the file ia about 70K. I think you will get the idea of our drought conditions. Thank God it started to rain on Saturday.


    I figured it might as well show up here. :)
