It’s true. Be very careful what you wish for.

Hello !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here, reporting for duty. * salutes *

 

I have not been  blog reading  much , I know, and I’m sorry for that.  I’ve been busy doing  other things, boring things, routine stuff…. like  going to work, coming home,  doing household chores,  yadiya…… and watching YouTube.  Wow. I didn’t know there was so much stuff to watch on YouTube.  I am aware we can’t believe everything we see there,  nevertheless, they are all fascinating.

 

Then I saw footages of the extent of  damage  from the 3 – year drought in California.  Now , THAT I can believe.  I don’t even have to see that on YouTube .  Right here at our own backyard,  2 of our 7 redwood trees are goners.  I took pictures of the trees , but I feel lazy  uploading them into my computer.  Later.

 

Funny thing is,  they say it needs to rain continuously for 5 or 6 months to get to the normal level of water at our reservoirs, especially here in Northern California.  NorCal  is the one that supplies water to Southern California  (  where LA is, if  you don’t know it ) . In 2016, our wishes have been granted.  It’s been raining since October until , well, today, and it’s almost March. Skiing resorts have been revived.  And when snow starts to melt , you bet there’s going to be plenty of water to go around when summer comes.

 

Melting snow from the mountains….. that’s the main source of water for California . But, since it’s been raining continuously for 5 months now,  we don’t have to wait for snow to melt. Our rivers and reservoirs are full and overflowing. People near the dams and rivers have been evacuated, and in fact, a co- worker was absent for 2 days because they had to evacuate to drier areas.  A friend texted me that she and her family had to leave their home, because the river had overflowed and had already reached their elevated porch.  Where I live, there are levees that protect us from  the river overflows.  My city is like a bowl.  The levees are like the rim of the bowl. Just imagine that.

 

So, yeah, be careful what you wish for.

 

This is all for now. Thank you for reading.

  2. We were in LA over Christmas. Rained the day we arrived and the day we left. Nice weather in between, though.

    • That’s in Southern California. Over here in the north, there’s no let-up…. it rains 5 days out of 7. * Our dogs don’t like it because outside is where they do their business, aaaaargh. And their muddy paws ! !

  3. Oh no, hope the rains will subside a little. Its true with climate change that the weather has gone a little ‘wacky’…we had that too and it caused flooding here. Imagine that. In the little red dot too!

    • My mother says it feels like typical tropical country weather, where there are only 2 seasons, rainy and dry…. wet or dry…. each lasting 6 months. I don’t know what they call it.

  6. I have been following the saga of rain in Cali. A dam almost breaching–yikes! Reminded me of a movie about water, drought, and corruption in Cali in the 1930s. If you like detective stories, it’s one of the best–young Jack Nicholson stars. Of course, you can find a trailer on youtube, if you want a sample.

    • The continuous rain for 5 months is really very unusual. Tropical countries like the Philippines do have this kind of weather, ( June to November in the Philippines ) but in California, this is quite weird. And unusual.

      Okay, I’ll check that out. Hmmm, young Nicholson. ^^”

      • I visited northern cali twice, both times in July. Not much rain, but mucho humidity. I still remember driving down from SF to Monterey and the Big Sur. It was gorgeous!

        • July ….. it can get really hot in NorCal……. about 110F ….. last time it was 114 F ! San Francisco’s weather is pretty even , nice weather all year round.

    • California is very important to the US. There’s Hollywood and Silicon Valley, but the truth is, California is a huge agricultural famland, and hence very important to the country. If agriculture fails due to drought, the whole country goes down with California.

      • Yes, Cali agriculture ends up in our grocery stores here in Michigan. And it’s so important to get that water to the orange groves–as Jack Nicholson found out in the movie! 🙂

  7. Slow and steady wins the water race, as well. :/

  10. Yes indeed, be careful what you wish for…. But compared to the rest of the country, you still have the best weather anywhere whole year round! Take care.

  11. Five months is epic, sounds very British as well. I booked for April to go to the Philippines, I remembered what you said about the heat but needing to get my jabs before hand it had to be April. It does mean plenty of good photo opportunities and chances to avoid Balut.

  12. I live in northern California, too. I’m glad we’ve had enough rain…but I’m ready for it to slow down now. 🙂
