Every blogger eventually experiences burn-out at one point or another. I'm taking a mini-vacation both last week and this one. Think of it as Spring Break.
In the meantime, the Tampa Bay Area is experiencing a drought that is unprecedented. Three years of water shortage and we're down to almost no water at all, with little rain in the forecast.
Because the politicians down here never had the guts to stop all the building. They were too busy kissing butts and taking payoffs. Building permits are still being issued, while many of us natives wonder if we'll eventually become so restricted that we won't even be allowed to shower every day.
Right now there are no restrictions on using reclaimed water (treated sewage) but we expect that this will change soon.
In the meantime, our lawns are brown and crispy, our dirt is dry as sand and can't even retain water anymore.
And we continue to build new homes.
