    What I am hoping for and most likely will happen, late March, through May, going to get hit one storm after another. Happened 2 years ago.

    Why conserve now? Conserve when you have to.Government tells you, yet they're running irrigation in 25 30 mph gust and 99% isn't hitting the ground. Better yet, because they're too cheap to spend and extra 50 bucks, they run irrigation during a down pour....Funny

    Been getting heavy drizzle at SFO...makes cutting lawns the morning tuff....however..
    Wish people would realize that a drizzle is not the same as a steady rain.

    Here's the latest.

    http://touch.latimes.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-78942148/

    I received a curtosity call from the Ditchtender today, she told me to get prepaired for water. I've already read the standard tail water warning (this time printed in bold text) so I have some work for the weekend. Ironically i was out patching ditches yesterday.

    This is the earliest I have ever started water. Target date is usually May 15. Last year I started water on March 20.

    This year is gonna separate the men from the boys at a lot of levels. Kiril should be a gazillionaire by the end of the year. :waving:

    That would be nice. Then I could finally build that trick pad on Mars I have always wanted.
