They issued them overnight last night. Reissued around 1 pm again ... I think this will be an all afternoon thing. We did get 1" of rain overnight at my place though. Badly needed.

Speaking about rain Rick, how long do you have to water sod? If I put some down this week can I go on holidays the middle of Aug. about 4 weeks from the time I lay the sod or should I wait till we get back

I would think 4 weeks the roots will take, keep the soil damp/moist. When you lay it one trick I learnt roll it make sure the bottom of the sod is in contact with the soil no air pockets. Water a bit every day till you go.
