Vamos todos, Alta California!
But the mail order bride industry is booming, and even the hot chicks are going for Happy Meals prices:
I knew there was a reason I’m preppin’……
This is what happens when the population gives up their right to self defense and hence-self determination. Instead of all of these poor animals, why aren’t they killing the politicians and the crooked police and military? Oh that’s right, it is continuous circle. First you lose your guns, then you lose………..
Kalifornia has spent billions on a hi speed train to no-where in the central valley and hasn’t laid a foot of track. 20 million spent a year ago during the drought would have solved this problem. The price tag now is 200million and rising as fast as the water. A huge storm is coming in a day or so and the snowpack level is +150%. They have no time to fix it and if the over flow works on the edges of the giant dam, lookout. This dam is an epic lesson on the incompetence of the left. Jerry Brown is begging Trump to save them from their own stupidity, thinking it would never rain again. Like the song says, ” It never rains in Kalifornia, it pours”.
20 billion on useless train. No maintenance on high risk earthen dam…perfect Moonbeam operation! In the worst case scenario, the whole dam could go….
Waters every where. Just got home from CA, late last night. We drove south last week to work on my sailboat. As we crossed Highway 17 onto the Santa Cruz side, we just missed a landslide on the EB traffic side.
I’ve not seen rain like that in many many many years. From Oregon all the way to Moss Landing CA it fucking poured.
Got to my boat, which I learned sites in the old Monterey river bed, and my 34 ft boat was covered in sea foam. Seems their are three hydraulic five foot steel doors that open when the rivers about to flood. Those doors are about 50 ft aft of my boat and only offset by 10 feet.
Got the bottom sanded,,painted and the rebuilt motor re installed, spent several hours on the Monterey bay motoring doing system checks. She’s good.
So much water that I ended up coming up highway 1, due to land slides closing roads. The sun was out on the coast, and I was able to scout my route north next month.
The Sacramento River at Red Bluff, Redding and Dunsmuir, was not over the banks but right at the top of the leveys.
As for snow pack 150%, my folks have a cabin on top of Donner Summit, off I-80. Perhaps the central Sierra Nevada’s or southern Sierra Nevada’s is 150%, Donner summit isn’t.
Many many years at Dommer summit I’ve had to climb a vertical snow Cliff Higher then the telephone poles, then dig down to my down to the story balcony. That’s deep snow.
We did stop in Sono,a on the way down, to pick up,sailboat parts. Andrew has the Sonoma River/ creek in his back yard. It’s a good 80 TP 100 feet deep down to the creek/ River. While we were their, the water level was 4 feet from the top.
Dirk: Snowpack at Donner is < 150%?
Upper Mammoth has nearly 30′ of packed powder. They will be open for skiing through 4th of July this year.
Sierra at Tahoe has received 294″ of snow since Jan. 1st, more than they received all year in 2016, 2015, or 2014.
When that all starts to melt this spring, the stress on neglected dams is going to be yuuuuge.
Theme music for Oroville Dam.
Reblogged this on FOR GOD AND COUNTRY.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
That’s Friday. How prescient.
