Hereford, Arizona has a lot in common with Crete, Greece.
1) The dry climate
2) Distance from the equator (related to #1)
3) Scorpions and other creepy things that want to kill you
4) All plants have thorns and want to kill you
5) Lots of wind
AND . . .
6) The water is turned off at random times throughout the week. We’re going on 3 hours without water people. What the heck!
I have a sink full of dishes that need to be washed. I’d like to water my “garden”. And . . . I just went running and would like to use the water that I pay for. Go figure.
