Water Woes. chronicle garden editor

Water Woes. chronicle garden editor kathy huber wrote yesterday about the serious lack of rain in the houston area this may. we were among the lucky few to get some rainfall on memorial day (half an inch or so), but that's the only rain we've had all month. our most recent water bill was almost three times the previous bill (but certainly not approaching three figures). darin used the sprinklers on the front and back yards two or three times, and he waters the vegetables every morning.

june is typically not a very wet month unless a tropical depression / storm / hurricane moves into the gulf and since tropical storm allison (june 2001) remains relatively fresh in our minds, i'd prefer not to have that sort of rain.
