The Big Presentation

It was that time of year again. It was time to present to the public what we think will happen in the year to come. I have been doing this for years now so it's not that big of a deal, but you never know what can happen. A few years ago I made the "Quote of the Day" in the local paper when I said that things were really gonna suck. Some years there were barely any people in attendance. This year the room was pretty packed. 2 news outlets sent camera crews, but I didn't see the story on the tele. The meeting made the paper and the local NPR news this morning, but it was a very general piece with no mention of me, just my agency. Overall it was a pretty generic presentation. I think everyone is getting used to bad news when it comes to the water supply. The only fireworks came from a person who owns a house along the shore of one of our lakes. He has been complaining for months that the reservoir level is too low and it looks ugly. My boss verbally sparred with him for a bit and most other people in the room had a "STFU" attitude towards him. People are being seriously hurt by the drought in terms of not having enough water for farmers and cities and he's complaining that his vacation home doesn't have a nice view of water in the reservoir. Boo fucking hoo.
