Water, Stitching the World Together

On one of my regular walkabouts recently, I noticed ice crystals that seemed rather picturesque....

After catching a couple different photos of the crystals, I found myself mulling over the importance of water, stitching our world together. 

Here in south central Kansas, we're well into what appears to be the third year of a serious drought, combined with much higher than "normal" temperature patterns.  Even for a prairie, we're dry.  I sure don't take water for granted like I used to.

Nor should any of us, but that doesn't seem to stop people. Exhibit A: fracking.

I cringe when I see anyone wasting water. So hoping the drought breaks for us soon. Those crystals are beautiful.

Hope the snow you just got helps bring your water table up a bit. It has been an interesting winter.

Janet, you've got that right! In fact, the weather is simply odd no matter what season it is these days.
