The drought here in the New York City area is at Stage 3. That means you can't wash the car, water the lawn, power wash any surface, and many more restrictions. Initally the use of private swimming pools was going to be banned, but now they're giving us till July 1st to fill our pools (thank god). There's been a few good rains lately, but the experts say that it will take a major hurricane to fill our reservoirs back to normal levels. Droughts suck!
