Bring on the water barons

California is on the verge of declaring a drought and enforcing water rations. Georgia is still facing record water shortages.

Meantime, snow is still falling in the Cascade and Olympic mountains, rain is falling steadily across Western Washington.

Seems to me we need to take a lesson from the oil industry and start exporting our water surplus for, say, $4.00 a gallon. Maybe we could even fund a new basketball arena that way. Right now Oklahoma is doing quite well, thanks to the rise in oil prices. Perhaps we could do the same with our abundant H20 deposits. . .
