Sunrise and Sunset on the North Llano River

As Bitsy and I viewed the devastation, a local farmer chanced by with his little tractor and said that until last year I would have been standing with my head under water in this river. Last year and this year — it never happened before in 50 years. I asked the cause and he said the farmers up the river are taking more than their allotment. What I didn’t say — the farmers up the river have always taken more than their allotment, only now there are more farmers up the river and a lot more people people for them to feed than the earth, water, air can support.
