What he said

Tongue firmly planted in cheek, this letter says it all.
Being charged by Mother Nature 'only fair'
Published: Thursday, August 23, 2007

It rained on Aug. 19. Please be advised that this water usage will be noted on your September Windsor Utilities bill, at the current rate of waste water treatment plus 60 per cent.

Since lawn watering is not required during periods of rain, there will be an additional 20-per cent surcharge for the loss of revenue for the utilities commission.

Following an inquiry, it will be found that current users of rain water will pay the increase due to former rain water users who failed to report such usage in the past. It's only fair.
