    It's been a little dry here in central Florida. My small swimming pool bog has completely dried up and I'm having problems generating enough RO water for my minibogs and neps. Looks like it's time to start buying water. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Don't worry. The rainy season will start the first of next month...only five more days. The latest it has ever started is June 5. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] ...at least here in South Florida.

    We have been in drought here for years. This one is to be the worst yet. We have been having some rain, but it is not nearly enough. To make up are water table we would have to have it rain everyday for four months solid. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]

    I have every sympathy. We had drought for 2 years here...first year it got to "extreme drought" and the second moved into "exceptional drought"--the highest drought rating. It just did not rain...and if it did, it was a sprinkle. Trees were dying everywhere. I lost 75% of my gardens because I couldn't keep up with the watering. My gardens will never recover.

    So...I hope that your drought ends soon. I have plenty of rainy thoughts so I'll send 'em down your way.

    I have three 30 gallon trashcans set up to catch the rain from the gutter. I going to add a couple more for the greenhouse. It helps to get the rare rain water. I condition the water in the small pond.

    Rain is welcome, but no more tornados. God Bless the families.

    Happier thought.

    I'm in, copper! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] NO SKINNY DIPPING! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    California has been in drought for like 15 years... Visit the closest resivor, and you can see how the water table dropped like 30 feet... There was a branch in the resivor about 20 feet deep that came along the highway, its gone now! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Water tables are dropping everywhere. Human are sucking thw water from alot of them, but some dropping is natural too.

    In texas everyone has started to pump from the rivers, and if conservationists want to save it, the get in big legal battles with the water companiess and people with pumping rights to the river.

    I feel bad for people in florida. Isnt the sea supposed to rise in the near future due to melting ice caps? Floridas so low it will be swamped.
    that makes no logic
