It has been a pretty topsy-turvy last couple of weeks for me. All good: most having to do with my job. In the end, I’m in a very good place and ready to rededicate to simple + green.
For anything I’ve missed, I’ll revisit if it makes sense.
One important story in the interim has been this: Schwarzenegger Declares Drought in California.
We’re somewhat used to being just around the drought state. But this is a pretty big concern. Counties had already been implementing rationing, and people have to be steadily getting used to the idea.
But water rationing is only part of the story. We’ve already had massive fires throughout the state, most recently in the Santa Cruz mountains. Just yesterday, residents of Bonny Doon had to be evacuated. This is not exactly normal for this time of year.
Our land being parched is only going to increase the chance of fires. And that means more damage to our lands, huge costs to the local and state governments. Not to mention a sense of lack, which is pretty dispiriting.
So it could be a tough summer and fall in California.
I hope to have more uplifting news/stories tomorrow!
