    Let it go dormant. Will pop right back with rain and cooler temps.

    It is supposed to be a bit unusual even for the jaded.You do know heat waves kill more people than most any other weather extremes in cities.

    This is a great point. So many people without jobs, money, and access to air conditioning in this country. This is not good.

    This is supposed worse...we'll see. But it could be real bad as it is supposed to be hotter and last awhile.

    My understanding was a brown lawn equals dormant and when it starts to turn closer to white it's in danger of actually dying, or at least serious damage. Is that accurate?

    Because I'm well into brown, careening quickly toward white.
