As you may have heard, California is currently in a bit of a crisis re: water, or lack thereof. Governor Jerry Brown has asked residents to do their part during this record drought and slash their water usage by at least 25%, through various measures which include but are not limited to not watering one's grass for 15 hours a day and spending slightly less time in the shower.
