I totally agree, the drought is having a devastating affect on everyone not just the farmers; and ultimately consumers will have to bear the burden of the drought by paying higher prices for produce. But a little bit of rain will not lower prices. What is needed are filled dams (everyone do as Howard suggest and prey :D ), desalination plants, better water policy and strategic management of water supply throughout all levels of government (and corporation too :) )

Actually not just fresh produce is being affected but all aspects of life. In Qld our power bill will be increased by 10% every quater as a result of the drought. We've had to take up measures to conserve water and install rainwater tanks and we recycle the grey water. And not only are we to monitor our water consumption so too is the government and if we exceed it we get fined :twisted:

I am missing my longer showers :cry: Four minutes to shower is not enough - sure for a guy it adequate for us gals we need more :lol: .
