U.S. Drought Monitor

U.S. Drought Monitor forCaliforniaI live in the D4 region here in California according to this Drought Monitor. Where I live, our faucets are still running and we have not been asked to ration our water in our homes. However, lawn watering and car washing is discouraged but not prohibited.

Our water comes from the Salinas River – dry above ground – but pumped from underground as it still flows. The Salinas River is the largest river of the Central Coast of California and flows north-northwest, drains into the Salinas Valley and empties into the Monterey Bay.

    I’m thinking of starting my own business. Since I love drinking beer I figure I’ll drink a 12 pack of beer then knock on the door of some home owner in the drought stricken valley and tell them I’ll take a nice long leak on their front lawn for 20 bucks. I did it yesterday and the old lady kicked me in the balls.

    this same map was published 2 weeks ago and it has been worse…They dont have a color darker than dark maroon or they would use it. One more year of this and California is toast. Not the cities, but all rural areas. I think its agenda 21, chemtrails, HAARP etc. Was this a scare tactic, or will they continue the weather modification? I dunno. “RRR” = “ridiculous resilient ridge” I believe it was created thru weather modification. And, after someone talked about el nino bringing rain, all of the sudden “they” say is wont. “They” are owned by ratheon…THis is weather modification for agenda 21. period.

    Another reason I left CA, when the water and power gets cut off, the whole area will be worse than a Mad Max movie.

    Maybe they should make Nestle stop pumping the aquifers dry in Montana. Watch FLOW “For the Love Of Water” It’s a great documentary on water usuage.

  5. lets see 20 million illegals using up water resources …. you figure the rest out
