almonds, for sale in Costco, Albuquerque

At Costco over the weekend in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I snapped this iPhone picture of California almonds, lots of them. I was planning the joke even before I took it about imported California water, on sale here in the desert. Which is true. Takes a lot of California water to make these almonds.

But upon reflection, I realized that pretty much everything sold in Costco comes from somewhere else, and water was used in its production process. So it’s really a store full of imported water. The almond schtick is just an obvious case.
