Conserve! (But Not So Much)

June 27, 2008 at 1:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

In a classic example of “you get what you ask for”, Lincoln Water System’s revenues are down because of all the rain we’ve had the past couple months. Lincolnites are using as much water now as we normally use during the winter. Folks aren’t watering their lawns because, well, it just doesn’t make sense to put any more water on top of the nearly 9 inches or rain we’ve seen in June. All in all, it’s a very nice problem for a water system to have, I would think.

I’m trying to remember how many times I have watered this year. I haven’t put any water on my lawn. I watered my garden once or twice. And I think I watered my flowers two or three times. Other than that, plus a little weeding, it’s been a hands-off year so far. That’s the way I like it.

You have to love it when you do not know which sprinkler heads do not work this year beacuse you have not charged the system!

rain storage twice for potted plants.  I’d take some more rain for my container.
