As we all know, we have a situation that has impacted all of us in our area and all of California. Drought.
I want to share some history from my hometown of the late 70s to early 80s in Carmel. We were in a drought at that time and what occurred was that we were required to use only 50 gallons a day, per person, in our residence. We had a bucket in the shower to capture water to flush a toilet. A rather crass rhyme was used: If its yellow let it mellow; if its brown flush it down. Washing a car in your driveway was prohibited.
When I moved to Modesto, I couldnt believe all the green lawns. The Carmel area has been under water restrictions to conserve water and most front yards are still drought-resistant plants.
My point is that we do need to be miserly with our water and not take it for granted.
