Having went to Ricks in 1976, right after the Teton Dam break, and then again
80-81, I've seen this type of weather several times, including summer
time.The big problem is all of the new upper campus building and the
temple. Back in the day when that was wheat fields, the water soaked in. Now it
has nowhere to go but down hill through the campus.Need bigger storm
I was at Ricks 30 plus years ago. Looking at all the photos and videos,
their's nothing I recognized. Looks like the kids were having fun, despite
@Kjirsten YoungbergCloud seeding is occasionally used and tested (think
Beijing opening ceremonies), but it has shown no ability to produce substantive
changes and has absolutely nothing to do with flooding in Idaho. Storms happen.
HAARP has no influence on that and amusingly announced in May that they're
shutting down this year (while also being a very transparent organization with
frequent visiting scientists at the facility)."do a google
search of "scientists worried about H.A.A.R.P." and see what pops.

Sling all the arrows you like; I will be vindicated once Edward Snowden's
files are all released. I'm not on top of the whole essential
oils thing, but an elderly woman in our ward was given just days to live. Her
daughter brought her to her home for her final hours, took her off of all her
"scientific" pharmaceutical medications, and made her comfortable with
essential oils. The old lady got well. It's been over three years now. She
ended up renting a home of her own again, and even does her own shopping and
driving, so perhaps there's something to it. P.S. I had all my
children vaccinated, but did my homework there, too. What I advocate is getting
the whole story before blindly jumping into the fray. A friend at
BYU-I is staying home from classes today to help her friends on the lower floors
dry out. No matter the cause, it's a mess.
@Kjirstin YoungbergWow! Records from Rexburg dating back to 600 BC.
I wasn't aware of (1) there was a continuous population in the Upper Valley
(Rexburg area in specific) with records dating that far back, and (2) before now
flash floods were uncommon, especially in Rexburg. I am not
doubting the cloud seeding operations. I know they happen. And it almost
sounds like your HAAAAAARP is an off-topic topic.What I am trying to
point out is that it not that unusual to have some severe weather in Rexburg.About 40 years ago, I was working in the fields on the farmlands just
east and south of Rexburg (on the Bench area) when a storm of similar
proportions as reported came through. It was rather sudden, dumped copious
amounts of rain and included marble-sized hail which was rather painful to be
in. This kind of storm in Rexburg is not unheard of.
@Kjirsten Youngberg,A high number of google hits does not the truth
make.Why are anti-science conspiracy theories that are so popular in Utah?
It seriously gives Mormons a bad name. The government is not manipulating the
weather, vaccines don't cause autism and DoTerra and Young Living essential
oils don't cure anything.I am a BYU-Idaho graduate. I lived in
Idaho for five years. Summer thunderstorms are very, very normal there. Given
how common they are, it was only a matter of time before one came along that was
a bit bigger than most and dumped more water than usual. Flooding happens.
That's why there are retention basins in the low-lying neighborhoods in
Rexburg near Highway 20 and the Snake River.
First, for Kjirstin Youngberg, monsoon flooding is actually quite common in a
desert climate. I was in Rexburg during the storm and aside from the hail, the
storm reminded me very much of the monsoon storms in Tucson, Arizona.As for DHuber, BYU-Idaho has instructed its professors to appropriately
accommodate students who were affected by the flooding. It has also instructed
departments to do the same for professors. And finally, even though it was a big
storm, most students did not have their apartments flooded, just some on the
bottom floor where drainage was not properly planned. With the growth in Rexburg
and more large parking lots put in over the last few years, I think there was
some poor drainage planning that exacerbated the problem. And finally, most
students who lost some possessions, probably didn't lose too much, because
after all, they are STUDENTS.
Lone Eagle, we have recorded regular Hot/Cold, Wet/Dry cycles dating back to 600
B.C. Those are the normal weather patterns. About sixty years ago, somebody
decided to start seeding clouds for rain. It has now become a multi-billion
dollar covert industry. Not only is it messing up our weather patterns, it is
destroying the health of many people and animals who have inadvertently come
into contact with the barium and aluminum oxide and other chemicals used in the
process. No scientist is worried about H.A.A.R.P.? Just for grins,
Twin Lights, do a google search of "scientists worried about H.A.A.R.P."
and see what pops. 5,560.000 links say differently. Many people say
this isn't happening, which is ludicrous, since the UK has openly admitted
it. I only suggest doing some research. I found the airline mechanics comments
on the varied uses of "waste systems" and the mechanics who service them
especially enlightening. Pilots can deny doing any spraying, because they
aren't even aware it has been installed as part of their static discharge
system. What a sneaky way to run a jetliner.
What kind of a school insists on holding classes when so many student have
We have thousands of scientists telling us climate change will produce more
erratic weather (no, no one storm can be pinpointed to climate change) but then
we are worried about HARP which no scientist is worried about?I
think I hear my old science teachers weeping.
Uh..... what's a "normal" weather pattern? We have a very
miniscule nano-second like record compared to the actual time span for the
history of the earth. After all, isn't Mapleton well below the top layer
of old Lake Bonneville? And what about all those shoreline markings on the sides
of the mountains? Doesn't that indicate that the lake level changed and
stayed for a while? And what of the Great Salt Lake now? Well below the outlet
north of Logan, yes? So what is normal?
Hmmm. What kind of voltage has H.A.A.R.P. been tossing into the ionosphere
lately? These changing weather patterns are not natural; it is because
scientists are experimenting with things they do not understand. Geoengineering
in an attempt to manipulate weather patterns is a huge mistake. Masking the
earth with artificial clouds will not cool it. Many scientists are now coming
forward to say it was a mistake, and that we need to return the earth to mother
nature to cure herself, before it is too late. Heavy flooding like this in
Rexburg is not natural. We had a monsoon last night in Mapleton. Our lawn and
reservoir loved it, but it's not right in a desert climate. Most Americans are not even aware this is happening, or the full extent of the
damage it has done. A media blackout means we must do the research ourselves.
Look up geoengineering, H.A.A.R.P. and if you can stomach it, check into Joni
Mitchell's disease. The only way to stop this insanity is to know what is
Love to see the students bonding and working hard and building memories.... too
bad it's over a flood! Good Luck to Ricks College (oops! BYU-Idaho) - my
