Thank you, drought

I noticed our fence bending in the wind and went to check it out. Coming from the corner of our house, down to the street looks like a freakin' fault line. There is a deep gap, maybe an inch or more wide in parts. The ground has pulled away from the concrete supporting the metal poles on our fence so that they just...sway back and forth. This drought has GOT to end so we can water the damn place.

I'm going out tomorrow to try to get soaker hoses so we don't get serious foundation problems on our house. If we don't already thanks to this.

One good thing, it feels REALLY good out there right now. Not too hot with a strong breeze. The strange thing about that is that it is COMPARATIVELY cool outside. I think it feels GREAT - compared with 106. It's only 95 out there right now. Downright chilly! :)

We JUST got back from Home Depot. Guess what we were buying?!?!

We have a sprinkler system, and we run it on the 2 days a week we are allowed to do so, but it's just not enough to keep the foundation properly watered in conditions like this. There are a couple of cracks on the walls that seem to have gotten a little worse the past few weeks. So yeah. Soaker hoses it is. I will run them every evening when we get home from work. Gotta be done. I think soaker hoses are still allowed any time. I think.
