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. -dlj.
"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.
