I've got a little extra time this morning to do a post, since yesterday afternoon, my 8 am appointment canceled, so now my first customer is at 9.
So, Our nicest day this week weather wise was Wed. It was fortunate that Craig and I had a gap in our day and we were able to talk a nice walk and soak in the beautiful 67 degrees of sunshine.
That said, the weekend is looking to be cool and wet. Maybe only in the low 50's.
This leads me to re-confirm our decision to move to Vegas.
Here's a Dreariness map of the USA showing the most cloudy/rainy days in dark blue, to the least dreary days in dark orange.
Now I know what your going to say. The southwest is in a decades long drought. That is true, but Vegas is in the lead in conservation of water. Way before the California gov declared a drought emergency yesterday, Vegas was 13 years ahead of California in conserving water. In 2002 Clark county (where Vegas is located) banned front yard grass in all new construction. Our community of 2200 homes has no grass at all. Every drop of water that is used indoors in Vegas is reclaimed, treated, and returned to Lake Mead. They have had a program since 2000 paying people for every sq foot of lawn they revert back to water smart landscape.
Today, even though there are 400,000 more people in the valley, Vegas uses less water today than it did 10 years ago. Though I think they could still do a lot more!
Yes, I did my research before deciding to move to an area running low on water.
So as I spend my dreary weekend indoors, I'll dream of sunnier days ahead. :-)
Now time to go.
