Storms: ‘Speechless’ over water resources

Posted

My husband and I were speechless yesterday when we saw the headline, “This is not a crisis,” referring to the Arizona water problem. How long have they lived in Arizona? My husband has been here 81 years and I have been here 75 years.

We grew up knowing we lived in the desert and that water was precious and you didn’t waste it. We cringe every time we see another subdivision going up.

To the farmers growing cotton, lettuce, melons, berries, corn, etc., this is a crisis and it will be to you too when they start disappearing.

This idea that we have 100 year supply of water is crazy! Are they going to start rationing water next month?
No, but it will come.
