Fabian: How long do you think this Drought is going to last?
Lia: I have no idea, but I’m not worried. I grew up in the Desert. Not having enough Precipitation was just a fact of life.
Fabian: Yes, but people here aren’t used to getting this little Rainfall. Their Livelihood depends on having a reliable Water supply for their Crops.
Lia: You make it sound like we’re experiencing another Dust Bowl when the Water table is just a little low.
Fabian: I think it’s a little more serious than that.
Lia: What we need here is a Reservoir. That would give this town the water Reserves it needs in case of a drought.
Fabian: What we really need are fewer Dust storms and more Thunderstorms.
Lia: And for people to stop Over farming. That and Deforestation are half the problem.
Fabian: You may be right, but that’s not what people want to hear right now. They need some Relief.
Lia: Maybe the town’s Water conservation efforts will make a difference.
Fabian: Well, I’m certainly willing to stop Bathing if it’ll help.
Lia: I thought you already had.
