This does not look good at all,I'm very concerned we need rain and snow,hoping for a march miracle,crossing my fingers
Agreed, this is very worrying. The most useful info I've heard is that a high pressure ridge over the Gulf of Alaska is what's been steering away the usual storms from California. It can't last forever but I'm surprised it's lasted 2 months.
So I'm dreading that the high pressure zone might have some staying power :(
I see a Big water rate hike coming up in the works with the drought.
Who thinks TUD is going to need more money for all the water we use?
California is in a drought all the time. Tom McClintock can you hear the facts yet? Global Warming Tom. Global Warming is warming up your lack of water. What can you do to save some water? How can you help California save some water? Stop wasting water today. Learn how to play golf on dirt, how to install drip irrigation, how to save water will be the future of California.We could start with Save the Delta, No Tunnels Governor Brown.
The worst is still yet to come. We are close to a catastrophe of epic preportions in the Western states. Within a few years as Southern California, Arizona and Las Vegas will be without water due the disappearance of the Colorado river, and the lakes which have been formed by the dams. I'm not sure why there is not any discussions about this is thee news. Unless there are 4-5 consecutive years of above normal snow in the Rockies and rain along the rivers path, it wil be nearly dry by 2020.
Time to take action. That's right. Do a rain dance.
In our house, we have started to drastically conserve water. We use as little water as possible and catch all grey water from the kitchen and showers to water the shrubs outside. We turn off the shower when sudsing up and turn it back on to rinse. We aren't washing cars and we are doing less laundry. I hope others are doing the same because we are all in this together. We all need to be responsible to make these changes so there is enough water to go around.
Bigelow is right, an Emergency Drought Declaration Needed.
Some folks should be forced to conserve. I see much waste all the time.
Take some time to redirect your roof drainspouts into an on-site reservoir for rainwater. Don't waste what you _do_ get.
What global climate change; that whole thing is a liberal hoax!?! Ha ha ha!! How much more evidence do you need climate change deniers need? Obviously, something is wrong. I've got trees budding in my yard, they think it's spring.. again this year. No more Salmon runs, blackened forests, brown hills & red flag warnings in January. Will it take a polar bear pimp slapping you to see that IT IS REAL? We, as a species are wiping ourselves off the planet, just like all parasites do. It's time to admit it, Global Climate Change is real, and it is going to spank us all on the butt if we don't admit it and do something QUICK. I would like my daughters to know the earth I grew up on. They won't though, even now because there are no more glaciers in the Sierra, where, over my life saw them disappear.
Just a way for the state to get more money. Does it bring the rain? No.
Does it bring Water? No.
