Don't even joke about that.

I'm... I have to... I'm going to the store later. That's just mean. How could you -- why would--

RE: Will the next world war be over water?
It would have to be a strange MadMaxian grand scale across the lands atmosphere. Wars already have had undercurrents of water being a strong motivational factor of it. The world wars were just so skewed up and beginning due to alliances or new political ideologies. I can't imagine a bunch of collisions in the same way would team up two battle it out over waters. You'll just more likely have pockets of unallied battles.

I know where I live in southern California we are having breweries pop up everywhere. Almost 200 and growing in the county. It's been in the news recently that the breweries are using to much water to make beer.

No offense but I can go without Guinness. There's no way I can go without my local Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.

Boston couldn't stop whining.

And yet, we're still behind on precipitation. Consider

What do you think the snow was?

Snow doesn't contribute that much to the ground moisture in areas that get regular rainfall......

On average, 10 inches of snow is equivalent to one inch of rain. It varies depending on moisture content but 10:1 is a good rule of thumb.

None taken, sounds nice. At this very moment I am drinking an Irish craft beer, O'Hara's Double IPA. 7.5% alc/vol. Nice......Smile

If so -- here in Michigan we're sitting on ground zero for the big war......

And I've got my own well.......

How's the water situation where you live???

Va here, zero issues, my water is free, apartment complex pays for it, no limit. I have a 4 bedroom 3 bath huge two story apartment with fireplace, power bill never gets above $100 and I keep the house at 67 degrees in the summer and winter. Power bill fluxuates between $80 usd a month to $100 in summer. Love it.

They have been saying for over 40 years that I know of that california was going to dry up, have a few really good earthquakes, and than fall off into the ocean...perhaps it will.
