CA rains will not solve HOA drought woes

Here in early May, a rare cold front with rain is predicted to drift through Southern California during the next two days (May 7-8), but we will see if the predictions hold true. Often, these do not. Whatever happens, two days of rain will barely make a dent in the drought conditions that now plague the entire region.

The drought will remain a topic for all of the state, particularly for HOAs, many of which continue to have policies that discourage, even prohibit water conservation by homeowners. The 'social current see' of the topic continues to tell the story of "water lust" by these associations, many of which don't mind tapping into a homeowners stash of green (meaning wallet) when those same homeowners may fail to keep their lawns as green as the HOA requires.
