Default $50 ticket

for watering on a wednesday, since I live on an even house I have to water on thursdays or saturdays only. WTF


I am taking this to court.

I am really pissed because we have had the most rain ever in 10 years, the town of boise is flooded and delcared a state of ermgency with army core of engineers comming in to fix the river banks......they washed out becuase of the rain and snowfall melt, we had nearly 300" of snow on the ground at the ski resort this year. and I have not even needed to water the grass until today of course 10 minute later a cop shows up and writes a ticket I pretty much lost it with her and probably almost got arrested lol.


also the entire area around here is farmland and they water all the time all day every day. anyone that ever has grown potatos knows how much water they need....constant.

worst part of it I was just watering a dead area on the grass at like 1/4 throttle on the hose. *$*$*(#)#$*#* i am f* pissed.

we had a drought here back in '00 i believe and we weren't allowed to water the grass at all. so i'd sneak outside between 3 and 4 in the morning and fire up the sprinkler and stick in a dip of chew

new plan I turend the hose back on, I let it run at full throttle just flooding the lawn, they cant see my sprinkers now

the reason they gave me a ticket as also becuase I was watering during the day which is not allwoed on any day, you must water between 7pm at night and 8am in the morning only.

news: http://www.fox12news.com/Global/story.asp?*=4882896
Boise, Idaho ~ May 9, 2006 -- Mayor David Bieter signed an emergency declaration today in response to continued high water in the Boise River.

But the Mayor stressed that the declaration is a precautionary step. How long and how much the rivers rise depends on several circumstances. Rain, warming temperatures and thunderstorms are just some of the factors that could affect the amount of flooding we see.

"There are certain circumstances where we wouldn't be able to contain without further flooding, but right now nothing appears on the horizon like that so we have to wait and see what mother nature brings," said Brian Sauer, a Hydraulic Engineer with the Bureau of Reclamation.

Right now forecasters say the weather has been ideal to help control rising waters and avert a flooding disaster.






no the cop had a f* mullet

I think I am going to take the lawn out and make it a huge concrete pad or something with a giant porch so I can park my cars under there.

I don't get it Hans..

You can sit in the center of the road drunk off your A and take pictures of cars nearly hitting you.

And you can't water the lawn?
