...out West.

At lleast got some rainshowers in Moab, but heck, temperate went promptly back to 100s in few minutes. Lakes in Utah are so low they're not allowing boat launch.

Thinking how are the tenters coping with temperature not dropping below high 80s even at night. Campsites now advertising warm waters for swimming.[emoticon]

Wish we could send some of our rain out that way. Some areas not far from us received 5 inches in 24 hours. Most of the drought that existed is now gone. Haven't had use the irrigation much at all.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

The 4 corners states could withstand an insane rainfall on par with Mitch that put Texas under water. Between Lakes Powell, Mead, and Parker even five feet of rainfall would be sucked up. But the prospect is less than dim for an ultra monsoon for that area. For better or worse California decided to support native salmon in the Sacramento river. Tough choices. But to allay fear, most of the AG production of the central valley is for export so there won't be a fruit and vegetable shortage in the USA. Where I am Hass avocados are $1.50 lb. And Driscolls produces blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and mushrooms. Friends near Puget Sound had a nightmare a few weeks ago when the temperature peaked at 109°F. Let's hope for better times as after all everyone has gone through the last two years...

California has lots of idle open pits where minerals and rocks had been extracted that can be converted to reservoir from rainwater instead of it being flushed straight to the sea/ocean. I wonder what happened to that proposal and the one where agri in Central Valley are to be converted to drip instead of flood irrigations..

As the world warms there is more energy in the storms. and more moisture in the clouds. So when it rains it POURS. but ... alas that's When/IF it rains. Dry climates are often dryer while wet places are flooded.

I too wish we who are flooded (Well I'm not but about an hour south they are) could shall we say "Share the wealth" with the dry spots.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
