that first part seems somewhat odd, as it would
likely help moderate and encourage ground water to
have a higher percentage available to be held back.
as it will eventually get into the creeks/rivers
the second part i would agree with, because by
damming those sorts of waterways you would likely
be interfering with fish migrations or perhaps
raising the temperature of the water.
that makes sense, but those who get there first
in a situation where supply is declining would
be those who would get it. sounds like eventually
there will be rationing when enough people want
to draw on it.
for the longer term i think the ground water
situation would benefit from a higher percentage
of capture of rainfall. has anyone tried to
increase that percentage?
31 (5555556,C) on my front porch at some time during the small
hours. Made it up to 46 today, which is more typical of our overnight
lows. Not unusual for this part of the peninsula but infrequent.
Two-to-four such "cold waves" usually occur each year but they're
generally of short duration. Be colder tonight with no cloud cover;
weather geek's going on about temps in high 20s. Everything that was
covered survived nicely but tomorrow (Wed, 8 Jan) morning may have a
different story. More typical lows in high 50slow 60s "should" return
within a day or two and the really frost-tender stuff (basil, peppers)
can go back outside.
