Widespread downpours offer relief, but do little to refill reservoirs

  Many places in North Texas see a deluge of rainfall, but reservoir levels barely budge. The recent June showers did provide some relief from the drought, even some sporadic flooding at times. However, we still have some ground to make up. So far this year, rainfall amounts recorded at DFW International Airport are more than 9 inches below normal.  With all this wet weather there's no need to water our lawns for a good while. So, keep those sprinklers off for now. And next time you're thinking about turning them on, check out the Lawn Whisperer's Facebook page to see if your lawn really needs to be watered.
