Yes listening to a segment on the drought all over the U.S. and how strict water rationing is going to be enforced. I believe on another thread I mentioned that water is going to be the next endangered resource.

Oh, good, it appears that segment lifted your mind out of the gutter.

Well now I'd probably be dancing around with my moves like Jagger. I hated that song when I first heard it, but now I kind of like it--especially if I'm watching the video. That lead singer is "hawwwtttt!

It's already headed that way. In Texas, the larger cities are already signing contracts with the smaller to purchase their water. Those around the Dallas area have even looked as far as Oklahoma for future water needs. One of the HUGE problems is that people in cities want the lush green yards instead of landscaping with drought tolerant plants, they landscape with plants that need a lot of water. That being said, I think this is possibly just a cycle of a weather pattern. Some areas of Texas are already seeing a bit of relief in their 3 year drought.

I'm sure in the future grass will be a luxury. I hope you're right about this drought just being a cycle of a weather pattern. The news was comparing it with the dustbowl of the thirties. Think John Steinbeck's books.

I'm afraid those visions are all in YOUR head. I think it's sweet you and Kev like to hold hands.

I think it is just a weather pattern for most of the nation, but the plains farming relies to a great deal on the Ogallala Aquifer, which extends into the panhandle of Texas. They are using water from the aquifer at an unsustainable pace. From studying tree rings, they also know that that area is prone to long periods of draught that make the Dust Bowl look like child’s play. That area should be used primarily for grazing, not farming.

Don't forget to tie the chin strap on Cov's beer can hat
or she'll lose it.
You're on your own from this point forward, and don't say I didn't warn you...

Projection, perhaps? LOL

My family on my father's side were all farmers during the dust bowl. They were also farming to a certain extent during the Texas drought of the 50's. I've heard stories from them firsthand. On thing you have to remember about the dustbowl, was that the farmers stripped the land of the natural prairie grass in order to farm. They didn't know the importance of natural drought tolerant plants. Farming has changed so much since then. Not as many farmers.

Agreed. But then the cities in that area are also using a large amount of water for landscaping.

In Florida, residents are forced to conserve water.
It's been in effect for many, many years now.
But here's a big problem~~the state keeps issuing more and more building permits, especially for large apartment complexes, etc.
It takes a lot of water to build stuff like that,
then have to supply water to them.
jmo~it's not drinkable.
I really notice the difference when I go down to visit family. I live in a small spring community in Georgia now, where the water is delicious.
