So today I was taking the University exit off 101 going north and then was getting back on 101 from University to go south.
I am pretty sure I have been reading nothing but drought drought drought..
And I am certain we are still in the grips of summer heat and NO water.

Can anyone tell me how and why the highway exit ramps are being planted with 100's and 100's of new 1 gallon plants.. with the sprinklers.. NOT DRIP.. on full blast watering them IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY???? And not just this exit.. there are numerous areas around that are being planted now. There are several areas in Mountain View as well. WHY?? Residents are chastised for using too much water.. and then we see this going on.
Planting in the summer, planting at all, OPEN WATERING in the summer.. during midday... ridiculous.
Seriously.. this is crazy. The plants couldn't wait till November or December when we MIGHT get rain????
I'm disgusted..
