Do you know how I can tell we're in the middle of a drought?
I can see the septic system in the back yard. I have alternating strips of green and brown in the grass - green where the water flows out from the tank, brown where it does not. It's only the second time in more than 20 years in this house that I can see the septic system's pattern in the grass.
At least I don't have to mow the lawn.
There's talk, now, that some neighbors are going to stand watch in their yards with a bucket of water and a blanket nearby - we all have neighbors who will be dumb enough to shoot off fireworks this coming Tuesday night - no one wants their house burnt to the ground.
Be safe, y'all.
