More Rain in the Boise Desert

More rain....lots of wind....and more snow in the mountains above town. We just got word that the canals will be filled Monday, although we're not needing to tap into the irrigation system quite yet. Most of our homes in surburbia use pressurized irrigation sprinkler systems. Our subdivisions have water rights to the irrigation water because they used to be farmland. The water seems free to use. There is a small charge for all the water we can use during the irrigation season, but we don't notice because it's in our homeowners dues, which aren't very much in the first place. The only days we don't have water are Saturday mornings because a farm upstream from our subdvision takes all the flow for flood irrigation that day. Sound so rural - but it's all within the Boise City limits.
