Too much now, too little then

Floridians have been forced by law to conserve water for the past few years, as our major "tank," Lake Okeechobee, has practically gone dry. Now they're draining it because we've had too much rain. There should be some way for us to balance the droughts and the floods! Can't technology solve these basic problems?

When retirement time comes around, we're outta here. In the meanwhile, this is home. Is there anyplace without its share of problems?

You can try and store water in water tanks. They won't get full when there are many rains, and you won't have to drain it in floods. It's a big operation, but it will save you from these situations

Unfortunatelly not. We almost had water problems in Greece too, but then it started raining for 4-5 days, and now we are ok. I hope this winter will be ok, so we will have water next summer. I also hope you will be ok with your rains, so you won't have any problems like this again.
