At War With Water
Hi folks. I'm sunburned and bug-bitten and back from camping. And at war with water. (Almost as mad as Venom in the 1980s).
There's a leak in the front bunk of my camper (silicone is my friend) and my basement is damp. I blew $200 on a de-humidifier tonight.
People in the Great Lakes region are talking a lot these days about the need to protect and conserve "the freshwater seas."
From my perspective, water is causing me a lot of problems right now. I'm having a hard time being concerned. We have so much freshwater here (21 percent of the world's supply) and it can be so destructive.
I tried reading the new Dave Dempsey book while on vacation in the woods. Sorry, I couldn't get into it. Maybe it was foreshadowing.
Seriously, someone needs to get people excited about the Great Lakes Compact. But how?
Maybe if it had a catchy riff ... somebody call AC/DC.
