Re: now Pam drought


Pam, this has been a terrible year  for so many people in this world.   I
can only imagine how bone dry it must be there.
It would break my heart to watch my gardens dry up.  Is the city restricting
water use there?  It doesn't sound like it as you mention how high your
water bill is.
 We had a tornado watch last night but it din't amount to much.  If that's
the most i have to deal with, I feel blessed, compared to all that has
happened to so many.
