No. They have a whole ocean next to them and reverse osmosis technology. It's just more expensive that way, but the supply can meet demand.

Easier? Salt it difficult (read costly) to remove. Louisiana can draw fresh water from the Mississippi River. They just have to filter out the piss, shit, and homeless people that float down from St. Louis.

Eh, I'm in the "it's all good" camp. Hawaii is gorgeous. I love Maine. West Virginia has some gorgeous areas. Lots of Pennsylvania is gorgeous. The Hudson River Valley and the stretch out to Syracuse in New York is some of the prettiest spots you'll see. Florida is pretty. I loved Oregon when I was there. That trip I took last year to Michigan (did the Upper Peninsula) opened my eyes to that part of the country. I've been to California and I've loved it. Just have loved other places as well.
Fair enough. I was editing my last post to add a blurb on SoCal beaches when you posted. I’ve been pretty much everywhere but the prairie states, and I too find the best in each place.

But California as a whole has no peer. It’s the Heinz 57 of states, again just ruined by its government.
This sums it up nicely. Well done. :thumb:

As I've said before, California is the cereal state - it's filled with fruits, flakes and nuts. Residents aside it is also filled with beautiful places. There are states with better beaches, better mountains, better whatever but I don't think there is a state with the variety and number of beautiful places and it has great weather to boot.

But they don't like nuclear power so they won't build new plants....which is a good thing. California will fall into the ocean soon...probably right after the Hawaiian islands implode...then we can hope Yellowstone goes... 8-)

My grandfather owned a farm in North Hollywood and one of his neighbors shot another neighbor over water. This was when North Hollywood was an hour drive from LA. My grandma made him buy the farm when FDR got elected because it was the end of western civilization and everybody was going to need to grow their own food.

CA also has 40,000,000 million people and a disappointing long term climate forecast.

I have an instinctive distrust of a state where two different generations elected Jerry Brown governor.

Actually CA is doing very well compared to IL and Jerry Brown is doing a much better job than tired old Bruce Rauner. But I couldn't pave my driveway in CA for what we paid for 25 acres with a house, barn, and pool. And this corner of IL is a hidden gem. :thumb:

Rauner's no peach but he isn't running illinois. Mike Madigan is the Khan of Madiganistan and is much more responsible for its many woes.

Rauner isn't tough enough for the job even if he gave a fuck about anything other than tax cuts for plutocrats. Unlike JB in CA. :coffee:
