We've received over 1/2" of rain this week, most of it in nice, gentle showers. Makes me glad I was able to fertilize (good old "Weed-N-Feed" like Dad always used) the yard a few days before it started, and even got some grass seed properly sown in a couple of the Big Bare Spots alongside the garage. Still have about half the backyard to reseed after I went bonkers with the chemicals the first year here -AND- didn't water enough.
Whacked the grass damn good, I did.....Reminds me of the "lawns" back in SoCal.
I wasn't used to being allowed to use so much water without risking bankruptcy and the Water Police (Lost Angeleez is NUTZ!), so I was being conservative with the water.
Didn't work and I burned out half the yard.....Le Sigh....
And swapped out my Sweet Little Wife's studded snows today for the wheels and tires that came on the car. It's a 2013 Hyundai Elantra, and the tires are just now down to the tread wear bars, and a couple of them are "chunking" in a very minor way, so looks like a trip down to Discount Tire is in the immediate future. The OEM tires are "Hankook", but I think we'll go with something better this time.
This lockdown BS is getting on my nerves. Not so much here, but in seeing what's happening in other states.
Kommiefornia is staying locked down for another THREE months! That's going to cause some permanent damage to the state's economy and make it even more a third-world shit hole than it already is.
It wouldn't surprise me if some of the blue states stay locked down until after the election, allowing "mail in" ballots and an astounding level of blatant voter fraud to occur.
And like some of the Interent memes are saying, why haven't we heard of massive die-offs in the homeless camps around the country?
Why are the politicians who forced this shutdown still drawing full pay and benefits?
And they took an extra vacation?
It's starting to look like time to water the Tree of Liberty again.....
