    Midland hits 300 days without significant rain

    Friday marked Midland's 300th day without significant rainfall, and unless tropical storms
    bring serious rains to West Texas, meteorologists said it will be fall before there are any
    signs of drought relief.

    That was the front page headline of my local newspaper today.
    That's just almost a full year without any rain. :eek:

    Oh yeah, we are long past that. The 2 days a week even/odd watering days have been going on for months already. Now they have really cracked down, and the City is actually fining people who water when it is not their day.

    I live where there is not much rain, but you expect that in the Mojave desert. But we have even had rain in the past four weeks...

    Hope it rains soon!
