the southeast is in a drought.
where i am it is higher than extreme – it is exceptional.
i moved here from southern california because i missed rain. i felt guilty every time i turned on the faucet knowing that they dammed the colorado river to get water to san diego, a desert, and that’s not right.
the past couple weeks ive really started to notice all the lawns in asheville are brown like hay.
there’s nothing i can do about it but move.
i don’t have to live here – my job is on the internet and i can live anywhere with electricity.
i love it here and i love all the people i’ve met.
i feel guilty about sucking water out of an overtaxed system.
i absolutely would not have moved here had i known about this drought.
i’m thinking of vermont. i’m thinking of colorado. i’m thinking of oregon.
is that crazy?
i hate feeling guilty, and every time i use water that’s just how i feel.
the rivers are way down, the lakes are way down, trees and bushes are dying of thirst, this is no good.
