      Wow, I certainly hope that if you or your loved ones have a fire there is enough water to put it out and save your home.

    Maybe we should spend money looking for water instead of tearing up the streets uptown. Sheldon looks like a ghost town I feel sorry for the businesses that have to be suffering. Shame on us.

    We had such a wet spring, I was hoping it would continue into summer. But no, my yard is drying out, even the weeds are panting. I have a container garden of 8 containers with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, etc. I water them faithfully every day, quickly. Then turn the water off again. I really wish I could water my lawn, but I guess its better to let it dry out, rather than spending all the water on it.

    Back in Walnut Grove when the Kanaranzi Creek, Minnesota River and Heron Lake Outlet started to go dry – we had enough common sense to stop using more water than we needed. Just enough to wash Nel’s shirts and Willie’s underwear. We certainly didn’t want to use more than we needed as we were upstream from the Ingall’s and they needed it for their livestock and Carrie’s formula…..

    Seriously a nursery, assuming the people run it as a business……..isnt that a service to our community. Kinda like the local car washes….being a business that serves our community. How about the lawn guys I see around with those tanks full of water? Or the local coop elevator using all that water to spray/airplane spraying etc. I mean hello already! The grandmother filling a kiddie pool? Really? Thats all you can say or comment about? I have no idea who has outdoor pools in there backyards but maybe I might start lurking around at night scooping out the local watering holes!
