      I wouldn't have imagined the drought to be this extreme that even public pools are being shut down. I've never experienced a drought, and it's hard to believe it can be this bad. I can't imagine how many businesses are being shut down due to the drought. Especially businesses such as public swimming facilities, such as this one. This drought seems horrific or those living in California.

    2. Water seems like such a precious resource in these photos. Hard to believe for someone who hasn't experienced a drought before. I can't believe even public swimming pools are being forced to be emptied simply because of how valuable water has grown in California. This drought must be devastating. I can't imagine how many businesses such as pools are being forced to shut down simply because of this drought. I wonder, what's the cost of just one water bottle?

    3. The water level has sunken that low in some areas that actual docks are collapsing? That's pretty extreme. I would have never guessed that the drought was so severe that even docks were collapsing simply from the receding water level.
