Today Mrs Maelinar reports that the sprinklers were on at the park she regularly attends on a Thursday for 2 solid hours !
Hate to point out the obvious, but we’re apparently in a drought. We are also being told by our Government that we need to conserve water – presumably so they have enough water to flood the parks on regular intervals.
Whilst I’m not opposed to watering public assets, 2 hours is one hell of a saturation period.
But wait, there’s more.
The sprinklers are set up to not only water the park, but also within the entire radar range of the sprinklers is the entireity of the play equipment, and the BBQ area – both items as you can imagine are as water reliant as Hour Glass parts.
Could it get even more incriminating I hear you ask ?
By rough estimation, Mrs Maelinar guesses that there were no less than 20 technicians out for their somewhat regular Thursday Yummy Mummy Perve, even an inground sprinkler system wouldn’t be too difficult to move with that many people attending on such a regular basis (I understand that this is a regular event for the government sponsored gardeners).
So, inadequacy on several fronts, with our water no less. If it wasn’t already pissing down outside I’d be putting on all my hoses right now in protest cause the ACT Government can go and get phucked.
