Arrow Can it get any hotter and dry out?

Its been great if your a car guy: No rain outs.
But my friggn lawn is a chore to keep green or the "Lawn Natzies" in my hood will write ya up????
I don't get it, hear me out. Watering ban odd/even days...no biggie to follow.
But the quote:"Park areas" have no watering system and are burnt beond brown and do they water???? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO
But me I gotta grow a green lawn and pay the price{water bill will sux this quarter} while the Lawn Natzie sits in his office with wonderfull shade of brown to be proud of.
What pisses me off is most is your water bill go's up and right along with it so dose the sewer fee????
WTF the water went on the LAWN not down the sewer!!!!!!!!
vent off
Enjoy a cold one Bro's

The bright side is that the car stays cleaner longer, and there is more time to take the tops down & enjoy the ride.

I must say the weather has been great
I have been able to leave the tops off the Z for 8 days now. It is so nice not to have to wash it every other day too.
Yes the grass is BROWN

Yeah, never ask if it can get worse, because it usually will. Just be happy that it's summer in MI and it's warm & nice out. You could always charge money for rides in your car to pay the extra on the water bill.

Thumbs down

At least you guys have some green trees to look at. All I have is Earth tones to look at.Ya know how we get white outs in MI. Well out here we get brownouts (sandstorms).I got caught in one 2 days ago.Traffic on the highway came to a dead stop.75mph winds and sand great combination.Thats OK I did'nt want paint on my Blazer anymore. And to all who gave me crap about not bringing the "sledd" this is a perfect reason why.She's all nestled up in redroc wrench's garage under her cover safe and sound.

I forgot how everyone stops on the highway in a sand storm. Your driving 75 mph and the wind is blowing another 75 mph. Nothing like sand hitting your car at 150 mph. Dude you are making me go back in time.

I hear ya Jeff! We lucked out in our house and have a well but we do remember those nasty water bills. We've been doing the water dance at our house.

You know it's been too hot to drive the convertable in the daytime. Sucks!
