A reader this morning emailed us this photo of the sprinklers at McCrae House, as she put it, "shooting lovely water full bore!"
I went over and had a look and indeed the grass at Col. John's birthplace is some of the greenest I've seen in weeks.
I spoke to a city worker there, who suggested they are allowed to use the sprinklers between 7 and 9 a.m. to water the flower gardens. But when I showed him this photo -- which clearly shows sprinklers aimed away from the flowers -- he said to call his supervisor.
We'll have more in the paper tomorrow.
