I was in Michigan, where they got more rain in a couple days than we've had all year. So nice and green, so moderate, so healthy..

WOW!!!! I have been following the threads and I am getting sooooooooooooo nervous! We may be moving to SA within the next month. I am not a desert fan at all and I feel like that is where we are headed. I currently live in Portland OR and I love the weather here. Guess there is no chance we will be able to acclimate slowly.... sounds like we will be thrown into the fire with no end in sight!!!!!

We went thru this in GA about 4 years ago. It's surreal when you see people 4 wheeling instead of being in a boat over what used to be a lake.

my lawn is green, due to me getting up at 3am when its barely 85F outside and watering my lawn for 30 minutes every other day.

sometimes though, its just not worth it. this time, it is, as my neighbor is green with envy about my yard (overheard her talking to her friend about how her yard looks like brown **** while mine is nice and green).

There will probably come a time, and it may be that time now actually, where watering your lawn at all is simply irresponsible, in this drought. Some areas don't have much water for drinking anymore even, in which case, I couldn't care less about the brown grass. This whole situation is sad. Let's hope for a tropical storm or small hurricane soon!

I flew a friend's plane yesterday over the Hill Country and the land was PATHETIC. So brown and dead.

It's usually not anywhere near this dry. Still the weather is totally different than Portland...maybe you can switch places with one of us?!

Hello again!

I live 10 miles north of Boerne. MY well is 380 ft. right now in the Trinity Aquifer (above Cow Creek) and it has GONE DRY!!!

This is the worst drought in a century, you wouldn't believe how many animals make their way to the top of my hill to get a drink out of my goats water trough every night.

Gonna cost me some change real soon...I just hope I can find a company to work on my well before my tank goes completely dry!
