"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Sounds like the situation Colorado has. Years ago the west slope [of the Rocky Mtns] communities signed contracts and accepted money from Denver for access to west slope water resources. But now there are more people, industry, farming, whatever, on the west slope and they want to throw away the contracts. Georgia is saying it's all the government's fault [wait for it - GW's to blame!] for water rights agreements Georgia made in the 1980s. [And, no, I don't trust the Corps of Engineers.]
Well, so long as the local beer emporia stay well-stocked, I reckon you can wait out a dry spell.
Hopefully the drought and water restrictions will chase some of the transplants back north. Though it'll probably just make them more bold when it comes to wanting new laws passed...
Lake Lanier was looking grim six years ago when it was my practice area while flying out of LZU. The exposed shoreline was amazing, even then.
I'm with Phlegmmy. Let them drink (and cook and shower with) beer.
Well, the Corps is still catching hell for the flooding of NOLA, so ya gotta figure that they would rather see too little water than too much...We have hydro plants in Florida? Huh. I didn't know that and I've lived here over thirty years.
Looks the same as when I lived there 7 years ago. There were legal arguments with Jacksonville then too.
Slip F13? Did Mayer have a boat next to yours?
Too bad it's not in the Bahia Mar
Our's (A couple hours north of Lanier) is currently down to 42% of it's usable capacity causing stage 3 water restrictions all around the area. We've got a better bargaining chip versus the downstream interests though, Duke Power has a reactor at the south end of the lake and letting it's coolant intake suck air would be a really bad idea.
I take it that there's some significance to slip # F13, other than me once keeping a 65' Somerset tied up there?
Mine went dry in SW Ohio a week ago Friday.Getting some water now but no long showers ;-}
I take it that there's some significance to slip # F13Ah, it would seem that you have not read any of the "Travis McGee" series by John d. MacDonald.You should. I recommend that you start with "A Deadly Shade of Gold."
Travis McGee lived on his houseboat, the "Busted Flush", at slip F13.
Nope. Slip F18.I've read 'em all and recommend them highly.
Forgot to add:Slip F18, Bahia Mar, Ft. Lauderdamndale, FL.
I'll take Kevin's word for it. I read the books back in the `70s and `80s, ending with The Lonely Silver Rain, which at the end showed the promise to take McGee in a brand new direction.I remember reading the newspaper when John D. MacDonald died. That was a sad day. He had a couple of clinkers towards the end, but the man could write.
