Default I feel like I'm living on another planet

All week long we have had red sun all day. Occasionally orange.

Skies are hazy 24/7. Havent seen blue sky even though it's been near 90 degrees.

And ash falling from skys like it's snowing.

Its from the fires that are burning in NorthWest.

I wish we could send you some of the "water" we will be getting this weekend here in Florida ... but it might come with lots of wind and you don't need any more wind.
Keep us all posted.
Thanks for the update.

Why not build a pipeline for water as we do for oil? If we are the wealthiest nation and if we need to use it in places where none is available put some hydrants on it for quick dispersement!! An idea from a genius!!

AND ... building a water pipeline across America would create jobs! ... and more jobs fixing them when they get broken ... and more jobs guarding them from poachers ... and ...
but honestly ... this is not a bad idea. Look what the Romans did with their aqueducts without 21st century technology. After all, if we can put a man on the moon . . .

Water is one of those thing that start wars if you try to take it from one place and give it to another. About the only place I can think of that has a lot more water than it seems to need or use it the Great lakes. That might be pumped to Montana and other places where it could be used to irrigate and to fight fires. Nevada (Las Vegas) is doing everything it can to still water out from under Utah (by siphoning all the western aquifers) to feed its stupid wasteful fountains and such. Farmers and Ranchers in western Utah that depend on pumping wells to survive are seeing all their wells go dry. Most of Utah's surface water ends up in Arizona, Nevada and California. If we cut that off to irrigate our own state, that would start a war for sure. The east gets a lot of storm. The west gets little to none -

Almost all the water for the west ends up getting dumped on the west side of the continental divide. The Midwest and the East get their excess water from storms out of the Gulf of Mexico and/or the Atlantic.
