Water Restrictions?

Well, our board of supervisors was supposed to be implementing water restrictions on Tuesday, September 2. What you see below is a completely dry creek bed that is overflowing thanks to the remnants of Fay which dumped 7 inches on our area Wednesday and Thursday. Let's hope that common sense prevails and we don't end up with water restrictions because of red tape issues (when the city of Richmond has water restrictions we're supposed to follow suit since some of our water comes from the James River). However, with government being the way it is, I'm not holding my breath that they'll be sensible this time around.

Aiden had a good time anyway. Every time I went out to get a picture of the oh-so-exciting water, he nervously stood on our covered porch saying, "Mommy! Come inside! It's thunder mommy, come inside!" My little worrier.
