Where I live is semi-arid (~16" of precipitation per year). It's not uncommon for us to have temporary water use restrictions in dry summers; bans on watering lawns and washing cars and the like.

And yeah, lawns are evil. :P
The social pressure on homeowners to maintain immaculate grass lawns is ridiculous. There are many places where "turf" grasses (e.g. Kentucky bluegrass) don't grow well without using an inordinate amount of irrigation water. Native shrubs and grasses use much, much less water (e.g. fescue grasses, here).
According to the article 70% of household water use in California goes toward landscaping. That's just nuts. Take away the use on landscaping and household water use drops down to around the level we're at.

This is apparently almost 10 years old. I've always commiserated with leeroy. I probably would have done the same thing. I remember when I played runescape, I use to spend a lot of time prophesying that the world was doomed to be crushed by a giant cow. A new world would form from the raw beef, using a prayer from the bones. Good times.
Even when the sun is shining, I can't avoid the lightning Oh, where did the blue skies go? And why is it raining so?

That video is classic. I was just quoting it yesterday -- my roommate was barreling through a video game level, totally certain he was going to die.
