Word on the street, and news, is that there's going to be a water ban placed soon. I understand, and it's probably a must, because I can't remember the last time it rained. I don't mean a 20 minute tease, I mean, rained. The kind of drenching that gives life to plants and saturates the air with the scent of trees and flowers. We're leaving in a few days for Georgia, and even though there is laundry to do, and to do lists to check off, I got out the slip n slide, since we probably won't be able to use it again this summer. I'm only a little upset with the no fireworks ordinance, I get the dangers of wind and dry grass mixed with fire.
