it’s finally raining *_* i know this is good, we really need it, but.. le sigh!
if you haven’t heard we’ve been experiencing a rather severe drought, the worst in ~100 years. some counties are imposing water restrictions, some are just weeks from running out of water altogether. San Francisco? the city is strongly encouraging people to conserve, and has raised water prices as an incentive. to my knowledge, no one has been fined for washing their cars or watering lawns. yet..
but what does that really mean? sometimes we talk about it, like when you’re stuck on an unusually long elevator ride. i’ve tried to take shorter showers and be more conscious of how long i leave the tap running, but mostly we’ve been enjoying the gorgeous sunny weather. yes we’re experiencing an extreme drought, and yes we should be really really worried, but when its sunny and 75F with perfect blue skies, its hard to remember..
thank goodness it’s finally raining. but thank goodness we made the best of such dire conditions while they lasted ;-)
