Did I tell you I am getting a water slide?

I thought this would make you laugh considering we are all clearly going to die this year. And I haven't even begun to be dramatic. This is the kind of thing that is eye raising even if we weren't the the most intense drought you can imagine. The East Bay is sort of divorced from natural water sources. The hills turn a deep camel brown color. It isn't uncommon at all for temps to range in the 100-108 deg range for a week at a time. But none of that matters because Mayors do the craziest shit.

"DUBLIN -- Construction crews will break ground next month on a long-awaited, $33 million boardwalk-style waterpark and entertainment complex, complete with six water slides, three pools, a water playground for kids and a 2,000-seat outdoor performing arts center -- a massive attraction expected to draw visitors from all over the Bay Area seeking relief from the summer heat.

Once completed in early 2017, the 32,000-square-foot facility will house one of the East Bay's largest indoor recreational pools, an outdoor competitive pool and a water slide tower with two high-velocity drop slides, a giant circular bowl slide and four traditional looping "flume" slides. The 4,500-square-foot, surf-themed water playground will have spray fountains, a pool and a small slide for younger children, plus a large bucket dropping hundreds of gallons of water from above every five minutes."
