After weeks of hot, dry weather we are finally getting some rain. Not a whole lot tonight, but the next few days should be very wet.
Which makes it fairly ironic that Tuesday will be the start of emergency water restrictions, no more watering the lawn or washing the car.
I snuck in one more watering before the ban to open up the soil before the rain. I had stopped watering about a month ago. We have mostly Bermuda grass and it was coping well until last week had the extreme temps.
Hopefully we'll get the forecasted rain. It won't end the drought, but it should alleviate the dry conditions.
