I keep checking on water restrictions here in Vaud/Lausanne but so far I've seen nothing. I, and two other neighbors, watered our lawns today, but I felt kind of guilty. I didn't live here for the last "canicule" (heatwave) in 2003. Do they not start to regulate water usage for things like watering the lawn, washing the car, etc.?

I mean, it hasn't rained any significant amount in Lausanne in at least 4 weeks and it doesn't look like we can expect any for at least another 10 days.

As bad as it is, I just can't help thinking about all of those people vacationing in Tuscany. It's got to be 39 or 40 down there. Ugh.
Never had water restrictions in Lausanne in the 18 years I've lived in the area. Our water can come from the lake if necessary.

Heatwave from tomorrow till Sunday unfortunately... back to cooking super early in the morning Hope a storm or two will show up...
