I've been watching youtube videos galore about the Lake Meed issue for months now, from the comfort of California's central valley. I've talked to friends in Vegas, they are not overly concerned. How can they not be overly concerned? It looks like a catastrophe coming. Really makes me want to buy a house in Vegas in my senior years. No water in a desert town, and Paul Volker style nosebleed interest rates. Where do I sign up?

People are in denial and that's why they're not showing concern.

What Realtor or real estate developer would advertise water problems?

Vegas is a house of cards waiting to collapse and it will take Southern California with it. (Excuse the cards pun.)

We have a lot of water up north, in the Columbia.

Too bad "the powers that be" can't get their collective acts together and figure out how to ship some of the excess south.

They know how to do it, but it costs too much.

The Mississippi Aqueduct would require pumping water 6,000 feet up through the Rockies.

The first house of cards to collapse will probably be Florida, though their water issues are a very different type.

As I recall, many major carriers wonít even insure a house there
Itís all about making that GTA

I moved to SWFL a couple of years ago. Initially, insurers told me they weren't interested in insuring my home. But when I told them it was new construction, they were eager to insure it. And it's only $800 per year. I live 3.5 miles from the gulf, 10' above sea level.

The age of the roof is critical. And the style of the roof too- hip roof (good), gable roof (bad).

Looking at youtube a few moments ago, looks like they found ANOTHER body in Lake Mead. Police and scuba divers are out there at this moment, apparently. Actually, only half a body.

I'm mistaken. Apparently it was found on Monday.

Another +0.11 feet.
If it keeps raining on the desert for a few more years...
May the cards fall in your favor.
