Now California Has Too Much Water

"Squirrels and gophers are your worst enemy." — Danny Wade, general manager, Tranquillity Irrigation District
 “Never let a good crisis go to waste” ― Winston S. Churchill

 California clearly let the drought "crisis" go to waste by building High Speed Rail and not reservoirs.

Sorry for the scant updates to the Oroville Dam situation but the State has decided to classify much of the information.  Seriously.

Must plant more marigolds!!

This would have been better in the last thread, but just saw on MSNBC,
a tear-down on a 0.1 acre lot in Palo Alto sold for $2.5MM. Wowser!

Too much water? Somebody call the Whaaaaaambulance!!!

The volume on EN is low enough that nothing is going to be off topic unless there are too many tedious unproductive political comments.

trying to think about a superstar couple employed by Apple earning $400k combined buying that 0.1ac scraper from the 30yr janitor who decided to retire with $15m in stock rather than retrain for janitor position at the new Corp HQ.

In other news nPoic/Mudbiker has banned me from his blog.

Go ahead. Ask him why. Oh and I am not mad or upset at that. I am upset that this shit eating asshole had the arrogant assholiness to call it a "vacation." It is not a fucking vacation.

Lawyerliz said...

Marigolds and this pink plant planted, too tired to get up and see what they are called.

EngineerJim said...

nPoic is the epitome of politically correct.

Lawyerliz said...

What did you say? I've liked poic since Irvine housing blog days. Don't wanna go on mud. Why did you want to?

Lawyerliz said...

Except to get Jo and Outsider to come over.

EngineerJim said...

>Don't wanna go on mud. Why did you want to?

I don't login there any more.

Rob Dawg said...

The thing is nPoic thought I did a lot of things I did not do. It happens but it is hard to correct.

Cinco-X said...

You must've been damping the echo chamber... Can't have that

Cinco-X said...

I wouldn't waste my time on those twats...

Lawyerliz said...

My happy yard Buddha is now happy because he is surrounded by Marigolds.

Mike said...

Obviously they can't handle the truth over on MB... :)

Happy cinco de mayo everyone...doing my best to help with the California (excess) water crisis by cracking open a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale..

I'm guessing Florida yard Buddha's sees some interesting critters cross their paths after dark.. :<o

Cinco-X said...

Cinco isn't really a fan of mayo... Just sayin

Cinco-X said...

I could tell you some stories...

Mike said...

oh yeah...

so Cinco says "Hold the Mayo"!! he he

Mike said...

the only mystery is.. how have monitor lizards not spread throughout Florida yet??

Cinco-X said...

My folks are it on everything... Ever had mayo on black eyed peas? Collard greens? Bleech!!!

Cinco-X said...

Something must eat them

Mike said...

ha ha..

yeah the monitors that visit go back to Galapagos and tell their buddies..

Cinco-X said...

Probably telling Florida Man stories...

Mike said...

and then this guy said "hold my beer..and watch this"....dang!!

Rob Dawg said...

Monitor Lizard: "Oh man it was great. Truly a vacation wonderland. Puppies. Kitties. These turtle things crunchy in the outside chewy on the inside. Then you can go for a swim. There are these baby manatees. Like gray marshmallows just floating by. ".

Lawyerliz said...

The hub likes it on baked potatoes instead of butter. I try not to look.

Lawyerliz said...

Grin, I think.

Mike said...

"the tourists..they want to take selfies with you..i'm not kidding!!"

Lawyerliz said...

Nothing has been reported on pythons lately.

Lawyerliz said...

Wakies wakies Easy Coast.

Lawyerliz said...

Well, if they had built more resevoirs, wouldn't they have even more too much water. Is Ventura since in drought, Dawg?

Lawyerliz said...

About, 4 years ago, unenployment was in the 6s, not too bad when it had been 10. MSN had to show badness so they reported u6 as 12.7. The high was 17.something. so now U 6 is 8.6, half of what it was before. I doubt is the media will cite this as a reason to rejoice.

Meanwhile the Kentucky Derby people are moaning about the lack of illegal immigrant. You mean to tell me Americans can't learn to handle horses? It's not like it's a surprise you know!!

Lawyerliz said...

It's not like horse people have no money!!!

Rob Dawg said...

Horses, boats and airplanes. How large fortunes become small fortunes.

Cinco-X said...

Been up awhile, but to busy to post... Of to a town meeting

Rob Dawg said...

Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties continue in stage D2 drought with the rest of the state drought free for now. The map is unchanged since March 5th. Unusual. Drizzle now with possible rain over the next 36 hours.

Of course the great bloom after the drought now has everyone worried about fast moving grass fires. Always something.

Lawyerliz said...

Chopping and planting a few marigolds as weeding. So much work with so title to show. My orange rose just over the turtle burrow has 2 blooms. About to plant some green bean seeds, if I can get my ass up. It's a really lovely day.

Lawyerliz said...

Late beans causing cat to escape. Don't ask.

Lawyerliz said...

Planted beans.

Rob Dawg said...

My kittehs are pissed. Since I had to put out some poison they cannot go out for a week.

Ask hubby about the Kzin species in science fiction.

Lawyerliz said...

Ask hubbb??? I read those books so long ago I forget. The kzin are very intelligent felines who like hunting people, who don't get it as I recall.

Lawyerliz said...

I was a sci-fi fiend long before I met him. Humph.

Lawyerliz said...

Is there time enough for love?

Lawyerliz said...

What the series about the Buddhist dinosaur paired with the large intelligent fluffy kitty and the man? Forget who wrote it.

Rob Dawg said...

Cathouse by Dean Ing in the Man-Kzin Wars cycle.

Yes, I remember stuff like that.

Lawyerliz said...

Going to see Mary Poppins.

The Tioga Pass Road in Yosemite is making progress for a mid-late June opening.
