[nafex] drought

I was planning on putting in several shrubs this spring (including a 
couple of currants, so this isn't entirely off-topic) but we've had an 
unusually warm and dry winter, and I'm worried we'll have a drought this 
summer.  I can probably water anyway (my town rarely has tight water 
restrictions - every-other day is about as bad as I've seen it) but I 
wonder if I ought to just wait a year.

In some ways, how much it rains during the spring and summer may be more 
important to success than how wet the winter was, but if it's generally 
dry, maybe more water would be needed.  And then, even if we don't hve 
real watering restrictions, I don't want to be wasteful in a dry year.

Any thoughts?
