The water shortage problem in America is to a great degree regional and centered in the west. It is also principally an agricultural/rural issue. I have lived almost my entire life in the suburbs or to a less degree exurbs of the Buffalo, Tampa and Raleigh. The fact that I am not directly impacted by it doesn’t mean I am not concerned about it. It took a turn for the worse this week and that item was overwhelmed by the Afghanistan news.
