It rained today. Expected to last through the next three days. No rain in January. Driest January in history. Santa Cruz has cut back water usage by 22%. I capture shower water in a bucket and transfer it to bottles to water plants in pots and the landscape. Flushing toilets is done with the same water. It's really not all that difficult to conserve water. I like the challenge. I really enjoy this vantage of the beach. I come here often. I live in a beautiful place. Visit us some time but bring your own water.
