A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Many people are choosing to put drought-resistant plants in their yards.
In some cases, that may be against their community covenant rules.
Some communities have particular landscaping rules to follow.
One Briargate community, for example, has a rule requiring homeowners to plant sod in between the street and the sidewalk.
At least a few people would rather see rocks or xeriscape, than a brown lawn.
While that's a violation of the rules, if the homeowner gets no complaints, the xeriscape can probably stay.
Some commuity covenants can be changed by getting a majority vote from homeowners.
If you want to play by the rules, find out how to change the ones you don't like.
