Arizona is dry as a bone (duh)

Since I've been traded to Phoenix again, for the 2nd time in 6 or 7 months, this one caught my eye: Arizona is experiencing it's driest winter in centuries. Not years or decades, but centuries.

I'm on the north side of town this time, up around Deer Valley, and you'd never know there was any sort of a crisis underway, as dirt is flying almost as fast as it is back in my beloved Frisco, TX.

The Phoenix metropolitan area is huge and growing fast. Under the best of circumstances, it's in the middle of the friggin desert, which I've always wondered about. I hope they know what they're doing, because a real water crisis could be very bad news indeed.
