Our Thoughts (And Thirsts)...

...are with the people of my home state, Georgia, as they face their worst drought in modern history. The danger poised by this unprecedented disaster to the environment and citizens is being exacerbated by panic (on the part of the idiotically useless governor, Sonny Perdue) and by heartlessness (on the part of the Bush Administration and the Army Corps of Engineers). Without significant amounts of steady rain, the potable drinking water will run out in December. Let's hope everyone gets off their bureaucratic asses and does something before it becomes a crisis.

And a personal note to Dad...I'm really sorry about your plants, which are your life's joy. Hopefully rain will soon be on the way.

I read about this drought just after reading about the sinking of water levels out west. I've made lots of jokes about signs of the apocalypse over the years, but I think you're right on to name this one an actual sign. Jesus.

This was a crazy weather year for sure. We couldn't even ship out wine to most of the country until October, it's been abnormally hot everywhere. And now the fires in SoCal. Terrible; I know many people affected by this.

We'd be in the same boat here in NorCal but luckily we've had a few weeks of early rain starting in September. Thank god!

I wish for rain to come soon to GA and SoCal and all the areas that need it so badly. And good thoughts to your dad and his plants; I know how that hurts from droughts we've had around here before. :(

I feel greatly blessed to be in Texas, which has had it's greatest rainfall in years. I'm very sorry to hear about the troubles in Georgia (as well as California). Hope things take a turn for the better.
