The Great Thirst Looking ahead to a post-global warming life in California, 60 years hence {SFGate}

…We shouldn’t assume, however, that we have bested Nature at her game. We have water now, but barely enough — and our population is once again growing, today standing at about 55 million. The planet is still warming, with consequences for California that are unlikely to prove benign. It is increasingly clear we haven’t really solved our water crisis — we have simply negotiated a respite. And we have no clear idea where to go from here

    Not really commenting on this post — I have a question for you. I am looking at grain mills and debating about whether or not to get the Country Living Mill. Part of me says go for it! It’s a high-quality tool and surely it doesn’t take that long to grind grain for a recipe. The other part of me says, one step at a time, make it easy on yourself and get the Nutrimill (electric). Since you are selling the CL mill in your Peddler’s Wagon, I assume you have used it. Could you give an account of your experiences with it?

    Thank you for your comment and question regarding grain mills.

    We purchased the CLGM about 6 years ago and it’s really been a great and solid grain mill and will continue to be for many, many years to come. I agree the price is the only drawback; however you are paying for a quality piece of workmanship that will last for years.

    There’s nothing wrong with taking it one step at a time so you can eventually move onto the another step. That’s how we got here, there’s no direct path – it’s a long and winding road.

    The way we look at things – if we are doing something better or different than what we did yesterday then is better than doing nothing at all.

    So at least you are taking a step no matter what grain mill you purchase.

    Hope I’ve helped. Good luck in your journey.
