Letter Re: The Southeastern US Drought

I was talking to a friend in North Carolina this afternoon and he was telling me about the drought conditions in the Charlotte area and he relayed to me some interesting drought news.

– The several acre sized lake on his property has dried up.
– Duke Power has issued a statement, in the local area, to expect power disruptions in the coming months due to low water levels in the reservoirs that Duke operates that is used for hydro power, cooling towers, and such.

Here is a link from the DOE about a drought’s drain on power. The article is from 2002, but the conditions are worse now.
