A couple of days back I posted those exact photos from space on this thread www.abovetopsecret.com...
Aside of that most people are still watering their lawns here. Went out today and saw sprinklers on all over the place. It is one thing to declare a
drought emergency, it is a a lot more difficult for people to truly understand the scope of the emergency.
Most people seem to think cutting back 20% will be enough, it won't. Also most here will not conserve until they are forced to. IMO every single
person that attempts to keep their lawn green should see the a huge fine after being warned once.
All car washes should be shut down, having a clean car should be an automatic ticket.
Drinking water in restaurants should be brought out only when requested. (My uncle came up with that idea a long time ago and it was implemented by
him during the last drought).
All outdoor swimming pools should be shut down.
All outdoor water features turned off, especially those in Vegas. (Vegas uses 300 gallons per day, per person inside the city limits).
This is serious folks and for what it is worth it is a trend that is quite likely to continue. There will be a couple of wet years here and there but
the overall trend is a bit scary.
BTW my Uncle is HUGE in water policies in this state. I kinda know what I am talking about it. It is going to get much worse than most people can
