Re: Rain, sweet rain


Wow.  When it rains it pours!  A foot deep - problems with the storm drains
or just coming down that fast?
We're supposed to be getting rain over several days soon.  I wanted to get
my lawn fertilizer down before it gets here, but the winds have been high
the past several days.  Maybe there'll be a window of opportunity tomorrow.
I did get 600 feet of irrigation tubing set today with sprayers in place.
