Where's the rain?

  Winter is the time when rainfall normally replenishes North Texas reservoirs. And so far this year, we're short on rainfall. Through Feb. 19, the amount of precipitation recorded at DFW International Airport is more than three inches below normal.  This time of year, keeping your sprinklers off is the best way to save water. Lawns are dormant and resting up for the spring. They don't need any supplemental watering.  Check out the Lawn Whisperer Mondays on Facebook for up to date watering advice and other tips on saving water outdoors.
