That's your walkway dawg?

Lawyerliz said...

How much rain is too much rain? Another foot? How much more rain would start to refill the aquifers?

Oroville Dam update:

Excerpt:
The aim is to start digging out a massive pile of concrete, trees and other debris that has accumulated in the channel since the main spillway fractured. The debris has clogged the channel below the dam, raising water levels to the point that its power plant – the dam’s primary release outlet outside of flood season – can’t operate.

This does not sound like things are under control.

Yes that's the front walk. I know the roses are a mess now but in a couple weeks...

Lawyerliz said...

No, it doesnt.

Rob, I left just left you a response on the blog entry "Scary Guns".

Mike said...

why does it rain the color of cherry kool-aid in Ventura?? ;<)

Lawyerliz said...

No, it doesnt.

Just got back. Clearing nicely. Waiting for the long range forecast. NorCal looks cold enough that much will be snow and not a flooding problem.

The rainwater is red because water in California is for fighting over. That and a couple drops of pomegranate juice for the photo.

We will talk more about cenurban balance of payments soon. Thx Walt.

We also need to discuss LLs question about aquifers. When you collapse system they don't refill. Like a crumbly old sponge you let dry out.

YES, definitely curious about how the aquifers are supposed to recover. I'm also curious as to if the moisture drought has anything to do with the earthquake drought, and what effect this monsoon of late will change that.

p.s: Sorry I missed the remainder of the scary guns conversation since emotions tend to cloud logic.
