May 19, 2010

We received 0.33" of rain yesterday. It was a good shot, but not enough to restrict golf carts.

Rain at this time of year is a blessing, as it saves us from applying irrigation water. This results in a budget savings of about $1,500 per night! For the season, we are up to 22.22" of rainfall, about 6" more than normal.

The downside is that the native areas that border the fairways continue to grow. In some places the grasses are five feet tall! And unfortunately, the weeds like thistle and mustard in those areas continue to germinate and grow. Normally those areas are browning out rapidly by now. Expect to see new generations of burrowing animals move from the native areas into the golf course as things dry out in the coming weeks.
