About a month ago I was chatting with my cousin and the issue of lawn care came up. I randomly asked if he’d adjusted his watering schedule due to the drought. With a perplexed look he responded, “No, why would I do that?”

“Because we’re in a drought” I replied slowly. I didn’t understand how this could be news to him.

“We’re always in a drought. I haven’t been told to adjust my water usage, so until I get something in the mail from the water company, I’m going to keep my lawn green”.
