Looking ahead

It's almost too hard to think about with all the warm weather we've been having - but forecasters are predicting a heavy El Niño rainy season starting later this year and continuing into the Spring of 2016. While the days are still sunny take some time to walk around your property and prepare for all this (much needed) water. El Niño won't "solve" the drought though, so also plan to keep up those water saving measures next year.
Preparing Your Home for Rain
1. Secure your Roof: Don't wait for the rain to show you where the leaks are. 
2. Check the Gutters: Clear leaves out and check that the water has a place to go when it leaves the downspout.
3. Remember Sheds & Garages: Protect your storage areas as well as your living spaces.
4. Cover and Protect Outdoor Furniture: Wooden garden furniture may need a new waterproof coating to protect the pieces from splitting, rotting and warping.  
5. Store or Cover the BBQ: In a shed or garage is best, but at least consider a waterproof cover to prevent rusting.
6. Know where to get sandbags: Especially if you live on or near a hillslide.

Now sit back and enjoy the rest of the warm weather!
