i wish i could feel more humorous about this case, but it really just reinforces my hatred of HOAs and this strange green-at-all-costs grass fetish so prevalent in suburban USA. as Radley says, "It’s too bad the homeowner’s association had $795 to spend on attorney’s fees in the case, but couldn’t give the poor guy a couple hundred bucks to help him comply with the rule." seems he's having cash problems since his ARM went up $600/month. where's his bailout?
i'm glad i just re-seeded what little lawn i have left. here's hoping i don't have to spend too much on it to keep the lawn police away.
