There’s not much good news, and hasn’t been, when it comes to Wednesday water woes. We know all about our own regional woes here in the huge State of Texas, but as you may recall; we don’t just talk Texas water on Wednesday.


Today, news reports tell us that 50-thousand gallons of “oil” are spilled (out of a pipeline) into the Yellowstone River. As I was driving back from work at A&P last night, I was wondering how to put into perspective those gallons.

A barrel of oil contains 42 gallons, and that translates into 1190 barrels in the Yellowstone.
