droughtiness according to my spell checker on the computer
is not a word
they suggest using naughtiness or haughtiness instead

first if you live here or eg in california you probably can figure out
what the new word means
since we and thee are experiencing it

second naughtiness may not be a bad word to substitute
since its naughty that we continue to overuse water here
and there
watering our lawns wasting our water showering washing dishes
and even shaving or brushing our teeth
planting landscapes that over utilize water

third haughtiness is what we all are going to experience when
our level of good fresh thirst quenching water drops or goes away
the level of potable water all contaminated becomes the norm

sorry drinking refurbished sewer water just doesnt sound
appealing to me
i know what crap ive put down the toilet before i knew better
so im sure theres lots of people doing it
not so sure all that crap gets removed
so we can drink it
i just know theres no way they can get what ive put down
there so its ok to drink

you notice i didnt mention global warming or climate change
since apparently that doesnt exist
i just know i see those glaciers overmelting
why thats happening i guess doesnt matter
but it is

then i know that polluting things like the air and the water
and our food system can not be good for us

then somehow all this affects our weather
that gives us this droughtiness we all see and feel right now

i went out and checked the levels of my irrigation tanks that i
use for my garden
usually this time of year they are overflowing
they arent
they are about 25% full
doesnt bode well for my summer garden does it

i go out and look at my bluebonnets those classic flowers
texas is known for
just south of us 40 miles they got a lot of rain this winter
their bluebonnets are larger and more beautiful than mine
are smaller and droughty looking and seems sort of faded
out some
the effect of droughtiness

im afraid thats what going to happen to all of us eventually
the drought and weather
will make us all droughty looking
well all suffer droughtiness
