Every Day They Call for Rain

And yet, every other day (I’m on a stage 1 Water Alert), I find myself at the end of the day, watering those shrinking bits of green in my yard, wondering if perhaps my neighbourhood is averse to precipitation somehow.

Still there are yards on my street who have completed the dertification process, laying brown and crispy next to their lusher neighbours, and I wonder, could there become a bylaw that says that you are not ALLOWED to let your front lawn die because it hasn’t rained?  Would it have killed you to do a *little* watering? If only to keep a shred of life in your yard?
