A Dry Year?

I guess not for Humboldt County, but counties just south of us are facing the possibility of drought conditions this fall. They're going back and forth trying to figure out ways to keep their water supplies up. Taking more water from the Eel River is one thing being considered.

I hate it when stuff like this happens. I like water, at least in rivers and lakes.

LA needs to have green lawns Fred! Don't you know anything?

All the more reason for the creation of the state of Jefferson.

"LA needs to have green lawns".

I understand that, during the big drought some decades ago, people in Southern California couldn't water their lawns and people were actually painting their lawns green with latex paint.

anon.r.mous, ranting as usual? LA water hasn't got anything to do with Marin and Sonoma counties. The predictors of global climate change anticipate that "water wars" will be more intense in the coming years. This is just the beginning. You ain't seen nothing yet.

With more grapes being grown for wine even north of Ukiah, it seems that that area will need more water and it may be ours.

On TV several days ago the rainfall was given as around 38 inches this year and last year was about 20 inches more. We may be going back to drought again too. Snow pack less this year which puts a strain on water also.

Don't remember LA painting lawns, but everyone washed their cars on their lawn.

The one who told me about the lawn painting came from San Diego, not LA.

I don't remember anybody painting lawns when I lived in Orange County, but that was before the drought, I believe.

Just one more reason to split into two states.

So we can protect what resources we actually have up here, from the mass of people down there.

Do they think that the extra water they take from us doesn't affect us and the ecosystems?

It is May and LA already had a big fire the other day. The drought does not look good for SoCal.

Hmmm , we haven't heard much about our local pest ( OK Gadfly ) Rich Sommerfield of the Times - Standard .
Maybe he ate one too many of his free chessesburgers and ended up in a hospital . Maybe somebody should tell him he looks like a cheesesburger and to start giving away healthful food before our people start dying of heart - attacks and strokes .
