Stage II (and a half)

Hey! You!
Yeah, you.The snooty bitch in the grocery store parking lot. You know how you wrinkled up your nose as you walked past my (admittedly) extremely filthy car?

Every now and again, I use the spray stuff so I can see out the back window.

 

 

Yeah. Want to share a little something with you. You know, in case you’ve forgotten about it.

Nary a drop to drink.

How severe *is* the drought?   I am gonna go with pretty goddamn severe.  I am not sure if that is the, you know, official title or whatever for drought conditions.

Who are watching their livelihoods dry up and blow away.

I realize that I might be overreacting a bit to your turned-up nose and moue of disgust. On the other hand, I don’t care. I have a sneaking suspicion that your car is shiny-clean and that your Chem-lawn is still a brilliant emerald. And if they are, you can shove my grungy car and burnt-up lawn up where the sun don’t shine.

  1. A friend of mine is the president of Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society, and they’re having an extremely difficult time finding hay to feed the rescues. Any hay they do find has to be either shipped in from VERY far away which costs a ton of money, or buy the more local hay which is super expensive due to the cost of growing it now (i.e. – watering it). We’re fucked.
