Ummm, what part of “We basically live in a desert environment” are people not understanding? It doesn’t rain much in Colorado, regardless if we’re talking about dry or moist years. And snow packs melt real fast, too. Yet the Longmont City Council came out strongly against Councilwoman Mary Blue’s proposal to ban lawn watering during the day. Remember, water evaporates quickly by days. It’s much more efficient to water at night and Longmont city leaders should have just made it policy to make sure its residents do the smart thing.
What’s Next: We wait for a severe drought, 100-degree temperatures and an “I told you so” from councilwoman Blue.
