Our water company sent a quick 'note' recently- "Due to the local drought, please only water once a week. If it isn't needed, please don't water at all. To do the simple needing water test, step on a few blades. If they spring back up right away, your lawn needs water. If they don't, please don't wa...

As far as your holes in the underbelly, ours wasn't new, rather 10 years old when bought from a repo place (2200 sq ft place and the price was right!) but they had cut a small slit under the bathroom. Water had 'bellied' into the belly, most likely from a hookup that still had water in it and wasn't...

Some of this can be contributed to what kind of seed has been planted. Centipede and Bermuda's especially. Grows less as fast, (such as Centipede sod) and doesn't require as much maintenance and can be cut short without suffering burnout. Bermuda, such as what you see at a golf course or football st...

Yanita i think it's safe to say that Ike will be southern Florida bound. Big difference in the sheer and dry mass between Hannah and Ike. We'll see, but hope that eases your tension....i can say i'm 85% sure it's southern florida bound, and 100% sure it won't be Carolina bound. (landfall wise) Still...

Charleston noon Friday looks to be the landfall target. My initial guess of Hilton Head still could be it as well though. North and east side of the storm will drown most of the Carolina's piedmont as she moves north.

Looks like Charleston will still be the 'center' point for landfall, my guess of Hilton Head initially may hold true though. North and east will get some brutal rain out of this as it moves up through the piedmont of the Carolina's.

I noticed it's usually 30 cents more from Asheville over to Charlotte, Friday up there was $3.60ish I'm in Brevard and today its ...

Updated model shows Hannah hugging the eastern coast of Fla...hopefully stays that way and the typical heavy rain/winds northeast part of the system stays off shore.
