Here are the rainfall deficits for the year so far. Galveston got lucky and actually had some rain early last week while the rest of us stayed dry. I've got my lawn and landscape watering schedule down to an absolute minimum... BUT, I continue to water my foundation (with a soaker hose placed about 2 feet away from the house). I live in fear of my next water bill. Rain chances for the next seven days are slim to none.
