Just Life| Drought Is Upon Us

Have you seen the new highway signs: " SERIOUS DROUGHT, HELP SAVE WATER. "

This drought seems serious.

Apparently, the most recent rain hasn't helped us that much.

To stay proactive, here are a few suggestions I have heard so far. Some of them are just for pure laughter to lighten the mood on this somber matter.
  • Don't wash my car.
  • Don't rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.
  • Don't flush the toilet or wash my hands. (bad idea)
  • Stop drinking water.
  • Drink beer instead of water. (husbands favorite)
  • Use old leftover bottled water to water the plants. (I do that all the time)
  • Take a quicker shower. (that is feasible)
  • Not taking showers. (bad idea)
  • Watering the grass every other day and for shorter period of time. (easy fix)
I told my daughter about this drought and I regretted it immediately since she is a worrier.

"What are we going to do mom?" 

Don't worry baby, I will buy you bottled waters. Anything to make her feel safe.

So, what do you think?  How should we combat this drought?

Here are a few suggestion from Save Our Water website
