I like your submission, ND but just in case, this one fits too -

In this case, a plant, not a condition.

We are currently having a nice summer storm with lightning and rain and we really needed it so bad. I am afraid it will do little to solve our problems. We have three or four trees that may die this summer as the sprinklers keep breaking a day or two AFTER our yard guys have been here and they come every other week. First it was one, next it was two, then three and I am wondering how many more will break this week.
