    This is a good time for everyone to watch (or re-watch) the movie Chinatown.

    This post prompted me to do a little research on water levels.
    From what I found the lake is currently about 142 ft. from dead pool.

    'A private detective hired to expose an adulterer in 1930s Los Angeles finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder."

    And it is about water rights.

    Everyone should try and find Blue Gold by Clive Cussler. It's chilling the parallels to reality.

    I read somewhere a while back that France owns more privatized water than anyone else.

    I've been trying to convince my wife that we need a windmill well and a cistern on the Oklahoma plot. I may just go ahead and make that happen without her blessing, despite our agreement to discuss all purchases 400 and up.

    After over 20 years, and considerable changes in our collective net worth, we seriously need to adjust that shit for inflation!

    It's more a mutual financial goal agreement between two people who had negative net worth 20 years ago, but are now millionaires.

    But, see it however you choose to.

    :rolleyes:

    A year or two ago there was a front page article in the LA Times, at that time more electricity was being gernated during the day with everyone's solar than we could possibly use and I guess it was going into never, never land. Not really sure how that all works. So I guess they need more people charging their cars at home and at work?
