A proposal: it's all about the toobs

Wherein one from The Wife and one from me

  1. The Mississippi river flooded.
  2. The southeast is in a drought.
  3. California is on fire.

Since the midwest has more water than it needs, why not run a couple hoses to the east and fill up the lakes and reservoirs of Alabama and Georgia. Then run a couple hoses out west for the seasonal forest fires. Everyone's happy. Probably too late for this year, but there's time to have everything in place for next spring's thaw. St. Louis to Atlanta is just under 600 miles, so that's a piece of pie to construct. St. Louis to the west coast is a bit longer at almost 2,000 miles, but if Azerbaijan and Turkey can construct a 1,000 pipeline, surely we can double that.
