    And yet there are many so-called "environmentalists" who can't seem to find the benefit society gains in have a water storage system to carry us through the years of drought. We may be dying of thirst and our crops are wilting in the burned-up fields but at least we'll have pretty rocks to look at as we expire. Though smart-design reservoirs must be a part of a growing population, there has never been a dam an environmentalist ever liked.

    Thats funny. I think it was just a week ago, I read that if Lake Powell don't find some more water they will have to turn the turbines off by Mid 2015. So what do we believe now. I don't think that I am buying 208 percent of normal either.

    Celebrating this good luck for the water sports on Lake Powell might be a little like being glad that the oceans are becoming less salty -- because of the melting polar covers.

    "a whopping 208 percent of normal — twice what is typically measured for early June."

    I got a good chuckle over this statement.

    I've never seen so much wood in the Colorado river as there was this year. Some whole trees. It is all going to Powell, so be careful out there.
