SO, IS IT ABOUT TIME WE START FILLING RAIL-CARS WITH WATER, AND SHIPPING 'EM SOUTH?

OR SHOULD WE WAIT AND SEE IF OUR (OBNOXIOUSLY) UNDER-BUILT DRAINAGE NETWORKS START CAUSING ROADS TO FAIL- AND BUILDINGS TO SINK?

This is the kind of shit that SHOULD HAVE BEEN planned for.  Assume that "Four Times the Highest Capacity you could ever need", is *maybe* half-as-good as it needs to be engineered...

AND,

Have some fucking contingency plans set- and the means to implement them- When even THAT fails.


[Also- it would be WONDERFUL if EVERYONE started collecting rainwater in giant buckets, instead of pointing their gutter spouts towards the street.]
