Water: Important

May 25th, 2006

We are heading West through California, attempting to get over to Route 1 so we can drive up the pretty, pretty coast. The hills are wonderful and coated with grape vines, or whatever you call them. This is wine country.

We have already passed at least two signs reminding us not to buckle up, but rather to remember the importance of water in growing food. Why? I think this has something to do with the fact that SoCal has to import so much of the water it uses for farming. Every once in a while someone points out that this configuration is really inefficient and we ought to be growing our food elsewhere, which the regional farmers presumably don’t appreciate.

Of course I could be wrong. And this inefficient use of water has made for some nice scenery, which some people (although not me) say is priceless. Left arrow-three!
