GotWater, your saying hello to a 3 year old post?Hello from Northern Nevada. I'm on the 395 all the time, hoping the Owen's Valley will get their water back someday. Looks like SoCal is getting payback for all their frivolous misuse of everyone's water. Time to pay the piper. I hope it rains like crazy down there, but they have to start being sensible with whatever they get. NorCal won't be giving them water forever, besides, they're running out, too. The beauty of desert living is we never have much water and we learn how to optimize it's use. Good Luck out there!
