Despite our recent touch of rain, the rainy season is actually wrapping up. In fact, last year we were teased with a similar sprinkling mere days after the Governor announced the official drought! Despite that brief respite, the hot-dry summer and fall followed like clockwork and reminded all of us that the efforts we’ve put in place to stop overwatering were well thought out.
Here’s an updated version of last year’s graph showing that the general downward pattern of rainfall, much to our dismay, marches on. So too does the drought.
Orange County as a whole is a leader in the state in stopping overwatering, but we can all still do much more. The first step is to make sure we aren’t wasting water and overwatering is the definition of waste!
So what are you going to do to help Orange County? Let me know in the comments below or, better yet, let me know on our pledge page and we’ll get you on the map so you can help remind your gneighbors that we’re all in this together!
