    If you overpump an aquafier it colapases the water spaces between the sand grains. This will never come back. It can be refilled with water but it will never hold as much per cubic foot as it once could. This collpase has caused land to sink down requiring canals to be redug to fit the new slope.
    By national and international treaties the Colarado river flow has been parcelled out. Problem is that if everyone gets there allowed flow the colarado river flow is too small. It had better fk

    I know in California the rainfallo/snowfall is normally 50% 0r 150% of "average" very seldom do we get the average amount in a season. This year we are about 50%. I assume the rest of the south west may be similar?

    Maybe you don't like these cities but evidently some people like living there. Best and worst places to live are very subjective opinions and you know what they say about opinions...they are like butt holes...everyone has one.

    trump doesn't dominate my mind at all but I have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out what is going on in the minds of his cult members and that isn't an easy task. Kind of like trying to figure out why crazy people are crazy. You lunkheads hear his lies and cheer him on. You hear him say that he grabs women by the pussy and praise him for it. Even get a gold statue of him and praise it. There is no explaining it that I can see.

    But.......Some just in love with one of those ranch lots. LOL Then they find out they have no water or mineral rights. And the elec power is a long way off on the highway and gets pricey bring power in.

    BTW---Was familiar with ranch North of Cheyenne that at 70,000 acres was NOT a paying cattle operation. "Driveway" was something like 12 miles off of 25. Ranchers eagerly embraced the missle silos back in the day....You get a real nice paved all weather road to the launch site.
    We bought our 40 acres in Arizona in 99. We also did our homework and knew going in that we would need to haul water until we drilled a well. It wasn't any problem at all. A neighbor let us fill our water jugs whenever we needed to. Now we have a well that's about 400 feet deep and it is right in the middle of a large aquifer. As to electric, we can have it brought in for an affordable price but prefer to make our own power, mostly with solar. I haven't started the generator in over two months when I got the solar hooked up. With the longer days I'm having a hard time using all the power.

    "What can you say about Madison"? That's where the educated people live so no wonder you hate it.

    Manny...Actually I think there are plenty in Madison along with plenty of your fellow Chinese who I believe largest group of international students at UW. Would expect China sends some pretty bright people over so more Chinese probably won't help. Case of you can't fix stupid I guess.

    After 20 years of mowing a 13 acre lawn twice a month, I hate mowing grass. The old biddies in this town complain about my lack of a lawn, once a year I will pull the sagebrush and mow down the weeds, I can live with the natural flora

    Oh crap....your on of those factory rats who got "The Brochure" LOL Lemme guess....UAW steward or some such thing?

    So....why did you dig a 400 foot well when you been telling us water can be had at 50 foot?

    You probably need to spend the whole year on that postage stamp. Big problem now is if your gone for a couple weeks it's likely your place will get appropriated as a meth lab or short term lodging for border crossers or mules.

    Yep....can only imagine you spend hour after hour peering out at the sage brush getting worked up about the "Trump Cult". Ever see weird lights at night out where your at?---Could be Trumpists spying on you.

    Had a house built and the yard in front landscaping was quick and permanent....BIG truck load of river rock spread over the yard with prickly pear(?) cactus that was already on the lot along with some kind of spiked Aloe plant. No watering. No mowing. No maintenance.

    Never missed mowing.

    Some say his statue is really a re-used one that had actually been Bart Simpson. I don't believe that because Bart's brain is about 100 times bigger than the Orange Idiot.

    Take a look at your post #776. You lump Madison in with the "worst" cities in Wisconsin. Maybe you need some help with your memory.

    1. You don't "dig" a 400 foot deep well. You drill them.

    2. I never said that wells were 50 feet deep in Arizona. Go back and read my post. I said in New Mexico.

    3. You really should get out more instead of just parroting what you hear on hate radio. We leave our Arizona place for months at a time in the summer and have never had any problems in the 22 years that we have owned it but I know what trump lied to you about when it comes to Mexico. He told you idiots that Mexicans are "bad hombres" and you believed him. No wonder you are such a fool. Stupid is as stupid does.

    As a matter of fact I have seen odd lights in the sky at night. One time a few years ago I saw a very bright light in the southern sky. It got larger and larger until it looked like a giant halo. I had my wife come outside so she could see it too. It turned out to be Elon Musk's rocket re-entering the atmosphere.

    I also saw a lime green streak go across the sky one night that was way too fast to be a normal jet. I asked a neighbor about it and he told me that we are in a "MOW". Military Operations Area.

    We also get pretty regular flyovers of fighter jets and Osprey planes.

    Now get back to worshiping your idol trump. He demands it of his cult members.
