As we enter the Sahara we were educated about the common law of the Berber's that establishes a council with strict guidelines for how much water and irrigation time each family gets through the dry months. Water here has always been considered precious. In fact we visited a water channel system that was 400 years old.
I know you have been having a lot of snow back home. Stay safe. You know how we put up snow fences so the snow doesn't blow across the road? Well, here they do the same thing but for sand storms.
Learning a lot. You Are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
