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.
