Later in the week we were in Austin and ate lunch at the Oasis near Lake Travis. The restaurant is suppose to be on Lake Travis but with the current drought the lake is down almost 50 feet and looks more like a river than a lake. As we ordered lunch, we asked for water as it is not automatically served. Of course, taking a look at that lake made one sure to finish the glass of water you had ordered. Especially when just down the road in the community of Spicewood Beach residents have had to truck in water as their wells are all but dry.
Conservation is the order of the day for Texans as it should be for all of us all the time. The challenges that Texas and many other places are facing reminds us all that we need to be responsible in the use of our water resources.
