Rain, Rain, Come today….

The nursery rhyme “Rain, Rain, Go Away” is complete opposite of what we are wishing for right now.

Flying across the country last month and looking from above I saw how bad our drought really is. I haven’t seen this much dry land in awhile. We’ve been doing as much as we can to save water at home and even use the water from washing fruit/veggies to hydrate the lawn.

Some helpful at home tips from the web:


– Bathroom use accounts for about 75 percent of the water used inside the home. – Take short showers and save the baths for special occasions. Water saved: 2 to 5 gallons per minute.


– About 8 percent of in-home water use takes place in the kitchen. – Don’t rinse dishes before loading dishwasher. Water saved: 20 gallons per load. – Wash only full loads in the dishwasher. An efficient dishwasher usually uses much less water than washing dishes by hand.

Around the house:

– Wash only full loads in the clothes washer. Washing small loads uses over twice as much water per pound of laundry.

Hope these tips help! Let’s save water together!
