Water Shortage

It has not rained here in Northern California since the start of the winter. This has left the ski resorts bereft of snow and the hills of Solano County lacking the usual rich winter green. Now it seems that the resulting water shortage has had even more far reaching consequences.

My wife went to Starbucks to buy me a coffee to bring to work. She asked for a large cup of water for herself. She was told that they could only provide small cups of water. For a company that will charge $4 for a coffee, you would think that they could afford to offer full size glasses of water to paying customers, but it seems not.

If this continues, I shall need to stop drinking water entirely and get my liquid requirements from wine.

  1. She could have asked for two small glasses of water?
