Palmdale Sheriff's Station Waters Lawn in Rain Storm
The devil is in the details. This astute and well-named handle said it best:
The Antelope Valley sits in the western Mojave Desert in north Los Angeles County. The Palmdale Water District threatened a mandatory 30% reduction in water use in a special meeting the last week of August.
In spite of drought conditions, in the Mojave Desert, government agencies have an Oasis of grass planted on their property.
Had it not been raining, the sprinklers would still have been activated in the afternoon when the temperature is most likely above 100 degrees.
