    1+ billion dollar in lost revenue for the landscaping industry so far this year.
    Couple this with the almost complete halt in the building industry and things kinda stink here.

    This may turn out too be my shortest career yet.;)

    I Live Up Around Charlotte, Nc. We Are A Few Days Away From Stage 4 Restrictions Also. Hey, Maybe We Can Get The Government To Build A Pipeline From Katrina Areas. Or Maybe We Can Get Grants B/c We Are Loosing The Shirts Off Our Backs. Can't Hurt To Ask, Heck They Do Wonderous Things For People With Too Much Water, Maybe They Will Help Us Too. Lol!!! I Just Have To Poke Fun At The World To Lighten' Things Up... I Think I Am Heading For The Mountains In Search Of An Indian Cheif To Work Up A State Wide Rain Dance.

    I feel your pain. We are losing work due to the drought here in the triangle. I think Durham has about 60 days of water left. Raleigh has about 80 days left. We need rain in the worst way. We are actually getting a little now and they say more for Weds. Anyways, good luck to everyone else affected by this.
