So now that I’m sitting on the balcony of my room on a cruise ship, almost drunk, with no Internet connection at the moment, I can blog about this rant that’s been on my mind for about a week now.

Down in south Florida when we’re having water restrictions where you can only water your lawn or wash you car on certain days of the week… Why is it okay for the town to be running the sprinkler systems in the rain? It’s 2010. Isn’t there a way to set up the system where when it’s raining out, a controller can turn off these sprinklers during storms? What a waste of water! The town should be fined for running the sprinklers during rain storms – and again for being so “Floridian” lazy that they never upgraded the system to allow for settings that would prevent this waste of precious water. Isn’t it better to be proactive than reactive? If cars can have rain sensing wipers – why not sprinklers?

What’s YOUR opinion? I’d like to know…

P.S. I must admit that I really only even thought about this because one day right after I had my car washed, waxed and detailed in my driveway, the gleam and shine only lasted a few minutes as I road out of my development into wet streets because the stupid sprinklers were spraying water all over the place – including into the street. I live in a community where people have Rolls Royces, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Ferraris and Lamborghinis – and I’m quite certain these people are just as disturbed as I am to have their freshly cleaned automobile dirtied only seconds after pulling out of their driveway.

Can’t somebody figure out a way to keep the water on the GRASS?! I know, bicker, bicker, bicker.. It just pisses me off…
