    I am glad the Utah groups have joined the suit, as we (League of Women Voters Salt Lake) did. After LWVSL sponsored a forum representing all points of view on the issues (when the State was hot to sign on with Las Vegas' request) I came away sure it was a bad idea. Now there is very little snow in our high country,or in Colorado or Nevada's mountains either. Just home from driving to Denver, the most snow is in the Uintas on the north side. We are ALL going to have to learn, and fast, how to live within a water budget. It's going to be a tough year, and groundwater everywhere will be depleted. Thanks, AmyJoi for writing this!
