Georgia drought!!!

Those of us in the northern portion of Georgia are under a total watering restriction. Meanwhile, the Army Corps of Engineers, per Federal guidelines, is releasing millions of gallons a day from our reservoirs to save endangered species (mussels, etc.). Alabama and Florida are the recipients.

But guess what? Soon, very soon, the endangered species will be those of us who live here. In the meantime, God save the mussels.

Re: Georgia drought!!!

Oh yeah, that's taboo. We can't water our lawns, so we sure as hell can't wash our cars.

Re: Georgia drought!!!

Certain cities out here (usually closer to chicago) have lawn sprinkling laws. But not being able to wash your cars? HAHAHAHA

And any neighbor narking on another neighbor needs to be shot.

Re: Georgia drought!!!

I've heard you all in Georgia have had no significant rain (as in more than .40" at once) since about March. Is that true? If so, I'll pray for rain for you.

Re: Georgia drought!!!

Same deal here in NC. No watering lawns, no washing cars...I can remember it raining only once in the last 2 months. We might get some tomorrow though.
