Depends on what you call it ...

It is getting dry here, again. The car is so dusty that you get grit on your hand when you close the trunk. Our water restrictions have entered Phase II. Those residents with even numbered houses are not allowed to irrigate with sprinklers except on Thursday and Sunday, from 4 to 8 in the morning. We can water with a hose and hand nozzle, in the evening, from 5 to 7. Odd numbered houses get to water on Tuesday and Saturday, same hours.

Thursday afternoon, I believe I will pull the car up close to the back gate and hand-water the grass around it. The fact that the water moves across the surface of the car first and the grass gets peppered with some extra dust will be all to the good ....

From the H20 website. "South Florida is experiencing one of the driest times in our history. Much of the state is under some level of drought. That's why, beginning April 13, stronger mandatory water restrictions are being imposed throughout our 16 county area. A drought this widespread and severe is having significant impacts on the region!"
Notice the ! at the end.

We can't water our grass but at the opportune times we are allowed.

We've had no rain in forever, either. The road behind the car just rises up into the air and then settles on the grass and weeds along the side. If you're unfortunate enough to follow someone - the road dust just turns your car a matching shade of pale brown. We used to have blue and gray cars here! We can still use water but that may change.
