Cost Effective Water Play In San Diego
I’ve mentioned before about the drought that California is currently in. It’s a doozy to be sure and one that’s unlikely to go away any time soon. Even with an El Nino currently in the forecast for this winter (meaning California is likely—fingers crossed—to get more rain than we have had in years), scientists have made the statement that it takes just about as long to come out of a drought as it does to get into one. While this isn’t a bad thing necessarily, it does mean that the people of southern California will need to be water conscious for awhile longer. This isn’t a bad thing; on the contrary, because we’re anticipating the holy grail of drought-landscapes, it means that our state is on the right path to finding our mountains lush with green landscape once again.
But what does that mean for right now?
As parents, it’s likely that you spent last weekend with a raised eyebrow as southern California was plastered in torrential and unseasonal downpours. Of course, these rains are something that those in the Midwest are used to this time of year, but for those of us used to sending our kids outside on a hot summer day, it left much to be desired. While some basked in the freak summer storm, taking refuge in the water, others thought ahead, finding ways to conserve the water before it even hit the ground. Even if you didn’t happen to load up on buckets full of water (a practice the news urged many Californians to do), that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the comfort of some nice H2O as we head into the hottest months of the year.
