Monday May 6, 2013

Lance and the yard crew were here today and Lance turned my sprinkler system on since it has been so hot and dry. I am now running them manually as Lance recommended. I am discovering that several areas are not being reached, either because plants have grown and are blocking them or maybe there is dirt in the line, so I think Lance will have to check it out. Until then I’ll try to spot the missed areas and do them by hand. The sprinklers will be on automatic every morning. We are supposed to get rain by Sunday, but it is also supposed to be a dry summer. Anyway, I read most of a novel before my friend Kay came over for a visit. We haven’t seen each other for a long time and it was so good to catch up.

  1. Has it been unseasonably warm for you as well in Vashon?

    Toronto has had a pretty dry year so far. 2012 and 2011 were pretty dry for us as well!) 2013 has also been unseasonably warm for us. It’s the beginning of May, but the weather has felt like mid-June this past week or so.

    It makes me wonder what the summer will be like in North America for all of us! :O

    • I wonder too. We are 1.5″ down on the rain, and we are past April, so heaven knows what we have in front of us. Last summer was really dry but thankfully, unlike the rest of North America, we were really cold as well. Time will tell, I guess.
