Sprinklers on When it is Raining
Why oh why do some people put their sprinklers on when it is raining and has been for 2 days? I mean, really... It's completely unnecessary and wasteful. I know most people with built in sprinkler systems have them on an automatic timer, but there are two things wrong with that. 1. You can turn them off for a night if you know there will be a lot of rain; and 2. It's not like New England is known for its droughts! We typically get plenty of rain, and you don't need to be watering your lawn every other day. Set your sprinklers if your lawn looks a little drab, but otherwise leave it alone!
