Drought

Page 2 of 2  


wow.. come south for a while!
Central CA. has almost 3 times "average" rain fall this winter and we're draining reservoirs twice this year... once to make room for all the rain, the 2nd time to make room for all the run off from melting snow... The down side is that now we have way more grass and shrubs turning brown in the 100+ heat and creating a really dangerous fire hazard..
We've been turning pine and fir from the Sequoia Nat. forest and it's so wet that we figure that it had to be under the snow all winter... I have towels tacked to the ceiling over the lathe and a plastic sheet between the lathe and workbench, and I'm still spraying water all over the shop.. Come On Down!!

I'm down in GP and we're 3" ahead of normal for the dry season, 7 vs 4". There was so much rain that the apple trees got hit and we won't be getting many apples this year as a result. My St. John's Wort is suffering from powdery mildew and half has died off so far.
Amazing differences for just a 100 mile separation, wot? (Eugene, right?)

This is part of a Cycle. When I moved to western Oregon in 1970 we had cold, snowy winters. Then it got warm and dry. Then the Californians moved here. Then it got wet. Then it got dry. then ...

... but at what part of the cycle do the Caliofornians leave? Asking, because they seem to be moving to Tucson also. :-)

I haven't seen that part yet. I'm hoping I live that long. :o)
Sure way of knowing they're Californians is they whine a lot during the wet cycles. Tucson they probably whine during the Real Hot cycles.

Hell, I live in a FORMERLY remote desert area of California, and with all our growth I wonder when the Californians will leave! These clowns move from the LA area, then gripe about the desert heat, kids on dirt bikes, people riding horses down our dirt roads, dirt roads in general, etc. etc. etc. They claim "People didn't do this in LA'" or "It's not like this in LA," Well, dammit, this ain't freakin' LA.
