Not complaining for this rain and cloud cover though. Keep the temps down as long as possible.

We definitely needed the rain...my lawn was looking like shit, and I really hate having to drag out the sprinkler

I've been watering like a madman the last couple of weeks. The grass is looking good again, the bill however, might not. My neighbor said his bill was close to $300. Though he got all new sod and was watering the shit out of it.

I made the mistake of cutting the grass too short earlier in the summer. I have some bare spots now where the grass burned up. I'll spend the rest of the year trying to build it back up.

I have never watered my grass save for a patch of sod or seed... We do water some of our plants, trees, and bushes but I leave that up to my wife.

I have not watered either just because I don't want the bill. But last night and today works for me.

Sunday I got dumped on down in Geneva/WeGo but nothing up here in Elgin.

Not sure what I find more amusing:

Lightning hitting so hard my backyard lights were activated.

Or the fact that my HOA’s sprinklers are watering the park during a downpour.

The sprinkling happens here at work all the time even during downpours and when we've received 15" of rain in the past week, yet we're running the sprinklers. I brought it up to some senior leadership one time.

We can't afford to maintain the place, half the lights are on at any given point, our parking garages are crumbling and you're laying people off in droves, yet you can water the lawn after we've had non-stop rain for 2 weeks... WTF!

Yea, we just had a torrential downpour here in Hoffman. But it's over now.

I feel vindicated for not bringing the Caddy today.

Tomorrow is good though right? Don't matter you got wipers and ac.
I has wipers and AC.

I don't need you sweating through my seat.

Well now the car is dirty, not sure how it will get clean, oh well.
