Water, water, we need water…

Despite our mighty dancing at the Rain Dance this past Saturday, not a drop has been felt. Critters & Crayons blog shot some awesome photos and wrote about it.

There seems to be no escape! I have burnt arms from passing out flyers to my neighbors at St. Peters historic area and we (the volunteers & I) are still not done.

My friend and reader submitted the following sad photo. She states that because the levels in her water tanks are dropping drastically and the heat is so intense, the catfish are dying off :(. The carrion is attracting vultures and other critters.

But… we are still better off than Big Spring, Texas. Time Magazine reports in an article titled Desperate Times, Desperate Measures: Drought-Stricken Texas Town to Recycle Urine. Uh, yuk, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Unfortunately, other parts of the country are drowning. My parents in Northern Illinois are grumbling about the nonstop rain putting a dent on their hiking trips in the forests (fond memories). Check out this video from friends traveling in Upstate New York who are getting more than their fair share of rain during their vacation:

    If they can run an oil pipeline thru Alaska, why can’t someone run a water pipleline to divert all the flood waters to reservoirs in areas prone toward drought?
