January 5, 2014- Low Lake Levels

Flying high in the air on Friday, Max Rosenberg noticed Lake Cachuma's current water level is shockingly low. There hasn't been much rain this winter season and photographs like these sure do serve as reminders to conserve water!

As we settled into the new year, Ed was curious what the community's 2014 resolutions might be. So the Dedicated Staff took a poll! 23% of those polled said they were resolving to "Lose Weight/Exercise/Stop putting butter on donuts." Fourteen percent of people wish to "Travel to a new place," 12% want to "Spend more time with family and friends," and 12% will "Get out of debt/Save money/Stop buying $8 coffees." Only 2% want to discover Ed's identity and reveal it to the world so it looks like he is safe for another year! To see all of the results and to read more, go here. Best of luck to the edhat community in their endeavors to improve themselves. The Dedicated Staff finds it hard to avoid buttering their donuts but we know you can do it.
