I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees the fallacy of water caches.  That one is worth an essay - or maybe a book.  I don't have time right now, but it'll likely get written in the near future.  
We have a 2006 photo of a solar well in WY - with a water cache under the the trailer with the solar panel.  As a good friend has said for years - Idiots abound.  Enuff for now.  
Walk softly,
Windows Live Hotmail and Microsoft Office Outlook – together at last.  Get it now.
